Touch down on Valley of the Moon

The valle de la luna is so named because of its similarity to the surface of the moon. And after looking at it from above I had to agree, as it did appear like the CGI images they use in documentaries to replicate the surface of other planets (especially the first pic below). We paid a bit more for a tour with only 6 other people that took us down into the valley, and it was worth every penny. One thing you can’t help noticing is how dry it is. Even the rocks seem drier than normal rocks, if that’s possible…

Truly spectacular place. At the end of the walk, the guides take you through a canyon carved centuries ago by a river and formed of quartz and salt crystals. As you walk into a cave you can hear the rocks cracking in the baking sun… a strange, unexpected experience…
