As we hike into the Val de la Luna, there is not a blade of grass or an insect to be found. This is the driest place on earth - in some places no rain has fallen in recorded time. Salt deposits encrust many of the rocks with a white coat that sparkles in the setting sun.
As the temperature drops and the rocks contract, an eerie sound can be heard, almost as if the rocks are serenading the setting sun.
This is a harsh but beautiful land where the survival of plants, animals and man is a testament to the tenacity of life!
