In the Atacama Desert

dscf1153Ringed by the Bolivian Andes, San Pedro de Atacama is the perfect back-packer stop in the Atacama Desert. With temperatures hitting the high 30s, we have a relaxing courtyard hostel as our base for the next few days.

This evening we took a short mini-bus trip into the Valley of the Moon and Death Valley; a landscape of salt and clay shaped by water and wind over millions of years. The beauty defies superlatives.

Although one of the driest places on earth, it had rained recently and it was rare to see this view in Death Valley
