Salar de Uyuni - Day Two, Part Two

All morning we kept crossing over trickling spring creeks with the crunch of ice underneath our tires and driving up to the occassional laguna where the landscape resembled the backdrop of a Salvador Dali painting. Endless hues of browns, oranges, reds and golden yellows found within small gravel, sand and salt desposits. Absolutely incredible.

For lunch we stopped at the Polquez hot springs where we could soak in the 2 1/2 ft deep and 20 x 30 ft wide thermal pool and temporarily cleanse ourselves of the ever constant dust. Park officials built two buildings on sight that offer showers and a cool shady dining room with kitchen to escape the sun and host lunch.

  1. Greener! All I gotta say I just keep thinking of all the magazines in which I could see these pictures. I am speechlessly proud of you. Keep up the good work! Love, Kristin
