If you read my post from last week, you’ll have learnt all about the magical phenomenon of Desierto Florido (Flowing Desert), that is currently happening in Chile. You’ll have seen how the world’s driest desert has turned into a gorgeous purple colour (check out this post before this one, as it’ll all make much sense!)
I knew we were going to see the purple patches when we took our long weekend trip to explore. But, I didn’t realise how many other gorgeous colours and textures we would see too. Within the desert, there is a national park called Llanos de Challe, which is currently brimming with colour. Of course, this desert is usually very dry and sand coloured! Probably with just cactus. However, it is currently hosting an amazing show of flowers of every colour.It’s hard to believe that usually, the greens were saw are not usually there, let alone this array of rainbow coloured delights…We took a short path around part of the park (which took about 90mins), where we got to admire all of the flowers and see a gorgeous coastal view too. There really were some special flowers there. Including flowering cactus, which were amazing. I can’t say that I have seen a flowering cactus out in nature before!Getting to see Desierto Florido in real life was amazing! It was better than I expected it to be, despite everyone telling me that I’d be wonderful. Chile really does know how to put on a nature show! I really had to keep reminding myself that we were in fact in the middle of the desert.
Have you been blown away by a magical natural event?
