Sometimes, things happen that weren’t supposed to happen and you get to see sights like these…
Two weeks ago, we had a long weekend here in Chile. Carlos and I had decided to spend it camping now that Spring is on the way and we set of early on the Saturday morning and drove an hour and a half from Santiago. Carlos had said we didn’t need to book, until we turned up and the camping place was full…! I didn’t say I told you so, but I did 😉 We looked at other places around the area, but there was nothing that had access to hikes too.
So, we changed plans completely and drove for another hour and a half to the beautiful area of Cajon del Maipo to camp in Cascada de Las Animas, which translates as the waterfall of the spirits.
The next morning, we joined the hike that is organised by the centre. You have to go with the group as it is on private land. It was a very easy 90 min hike, with some stunning mountain and waterfall views.
So sad about that grey sky though, as the photos don’t do justice to the colours… next time, eh?! The valley was pretty swoon worthy and picturesque! And those waterfalls, they were pretty nice too 🙂 That evening, Chile showed us what it does best, an amazing sunset. The whole sky turned pink and was beautiful! I was lucky to get my camera just in time, as the sky quickly turned black. Just look at these…
It was pretty spectacular! 🙂
