Chile’s Valley of the Moon

This is the Valley of the Moon, or, Valle de la Luna, a valley about 15 kilometers west of San Pedro de Atacama that admirably lives up to its name. It’s one of the driest places on the planet – some areas haven’t felt a raindrop in hundreds of years. I didn’t bike it, but now I wish I did.

Today I’m off for a three-day trip to a somewhat similar setting in southwest Bolivia, the Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world. It’s also one of the most other-worldly landscapes on earth. Looking forward. :)
