The last post was about Uyuni, and although we spent 3 days there immersed in beautiful landscapes, we only told you about the first day. Its time for some catching-up.
The second morning started cold and very early, we were going to say goodbye to the salt flats, and ride into a desert of rocks to discover beautiful lakes.
We stopped close to a lake where we saw flamingos. The lakes are very rich in minerals that were laid out by earlier volcanic eruptions, it makes it a perfect habitat for the growth of a type of plankton that flamingos like to eat, which gives them the pinkish color.
We continued our journey to one famous site called "arbol de piedra" or stone tree.
It felt unreal to find these magnificent sculptures in such an isolated place. I guess nature chooses wise where to display its best masterpieces.
