Trekking the Valley of Death (deep in the Chilean Atacama)

My last few posts have been text heavy and image lite. So in the tradition of the time-honoured cliche (a picture tells around a thousand words) I’ll focus on the pics in this one. These photos were taken in the Atacama desert in Chile, a short drive from the small town of San Pedro de Atacama.

We visited the Valle de la Muerte (valley of death, aka the Mars valley) and Valle de la Luna (the valley of the moon). Both have pretty awesome names I think you’ll agree, whatever language you favour. First set of images comes from the good ol valley of death and dying. *

Web connections in Bolivia being what they are (ie: goddam unreliable), I will upload valley of the moon pics in the next update!
