Las fuerzas naturales de Bolivia

After spending four days traversing the remote South of Bolivia in a jeep, I have a renewed respect for nature. The high altitude landscape, devoid of trees and forest, revealed a truly unique beauty. Wild and expansive desert spaces unfolded as we drove up to 12 hours per day across an immense terrain. Snow coated volcano peaks, green ribbons of marshy grass supporting llamas, sky reflecting lakes visited by flamingos and hot thermal springs; Bolivia truly is a very active force of nature.

We slept in simple towns, where people survive on mining for silver, farming salt and quinoa grains; somehow fending off the extremes of temperature. I travelled with a lovely Dutch girl and an odd Italian/French couple, hours spent mystified by the silent and changing earth. In another jeep, four Aussie girls, equally as impressed by what nature had to offer.

Ending the tour at Salar de Uyuni during Summer in Bolivia, meant that the landscape was saturated with water. Offering a unique view of an immense salt flat that is normally dry throughout most of the year. A breathtakingly beautiful white on white landscape that mirrored a cloud covered stormy sky. The journey has definitely been a highlight for me after months in South America!
