This weekend was a long weekend in Chile, which meant a new adventure!
We had wanted to go to Embalse de Yeso and Baños Morales in Cajon del Maipo for a while, especially in winter when everything is covered in white, fluffy snow. So we planned exactly that but didn’t expect quite how beautiful it would be! It really did exceed all of my expectations.
Cajon del Maipo is just outside Santiago, but you feel that you are miles and miles away from the city.
On day one, we headed to Embalse de Yeso, which is a dam with very pretty surroundings. It felt as though we were ice-skating in our boots as the snow had become so compact that it was very slippery, but the views were just beautiful. The air was fresh, the breeze was cold and the bright snow even dazzled us at times.However, it was nothing compared to the beauty of day two, when we drove almost up to Baños Colina. It was some of the most spectacular scenery I’ve seen, it really was something special. As we drove closer and closer, I couldn’t quite believe how stunning the mountains looked. The textures of them, the brightness of the snow and the gusts of wind just made it all feel like a magical dream.It really was a mountain lover’s paradise. My eyes captured every angle of the place, which we only shared with a few other families, making it feel like we were on some sort of wild escape. Of course, a camera can never capture extreme beauty in the way that our eyes do, but I tried my best to snap it all in through my lens.
Until next time, snow!
Where is your magical winter?
