And we went north, to the north of Chile where there is no vegetation and the geology is clear and the beauty is in the rocks and sediment nakedly exposed to the intense blue sky and our curious gaze. Words cannot describe the power of this landscape which is not on any tourist’s map, for it is hard to access and not amenable to trips in cars or SUVs. So I refrain from further words and simply post the photos that follow. Count yourself blessed if ever you can see this wonderland in reality. What a background for a Chilean opera!
