From San Pedro to Uyuni

The trip from San Pedro de Atacama in Chile to Uyuni in Bolivia is without a doubt some of the most beautiful and unique landscape I have laid eyes on.

The tour takes three days by jeep in which you pass through the desert and end up at the salt flats. You are given lots of chances to get out of the jeep and wander around and take in all the views around you.  They look something like this…

Mountains, lakes, sand, rocks.

For the first night you stay in the middle of the desert and it is FREEEEEEEZING!  I remember having so many layers on that I could hardly move but still being cold.

This sunset made up for it… Usually sunsets never capture as well on the camera, but this one did.  It lit up the whole sky.  Very dramatic!DSCF3544 DSCF3570 DSCF3576 DSCF3586 DSCF3608 DSCF3622

The last day of the tour is the most famous part.  The salt flats of Bolivia.DSCF3678 DSCF3679 DSCF3684DSC05066DSC05069

Looking through these photos made me very nostalgic for that trip!  Have you been to the beautiful desert?
