Photographer's Note

On the bolivian Altiplano, at almost 5000 meters high, the air is very dry and the sun hard, yet it freezes - a mouthful of degrees during daytime, down to -22° or -25° at night. The hill on the picture is actually a volcano - one can tell by the yellowish-red and the shape of the peak. The laguna itself is a thermic lake oversaturated in salt which might explain this incredible blue-green emeraud-like color. A few steps nearby one can have a hot bath (30°) in a natural pool.

NB: this is my last contribution to TrekEarth... for a month, since I'm living for a mountainbike trip in Iceland... and hopefully will come back with great shots to share with you all. In the meantime enjoy, life's amazing, and farewell!

Check there and look for the "photos" section for more images.

Any comment welcome !

Cheers folks.
