PanAmerica Panorama – Salar De Uyuni

banner-panorama-salar-de-uyuni-copyYes, time for me to indulge my love of panoramas again, and today I take you to the salt flats, Salar De Uyuni, in southern Bolivia.

I was on a three-day tour to the salt flats and the surrounding areas right up to the Chilean border, there were many lakes, sulphur reserves, rock formations and even an island in the middle of the salt flats called Inca Wasi, left over from when there was actual water across the plains. But enough! Today is about the photos, not about the words!

Not the best one with a clear re-calibration halfway through taking the photograph I neglected however to take more of the flats by themselves.

Never alone on the tour, there were countless tours doing the same route stopping at the same places.

As we went further south, the salt flats gave way to to desert and time and wind had carved out some amazing things in the rocks.

On the final day, scenery changed a little and we even had some greenery, and with it, llamas!
