The Road, Altiplano, northern Chile

This is the way to the high peaks of the Chilean Altiplano, where I go in search of peace and tranquility in the desert and for the wonderful color of the earth and sky.
Spanish for High Plain, the Altiplano lies in west-central South America and is the most extensive area of high plateau outside of Tibet. Located in the widest part of the Andes Mountains and averaging around 3750 meters in height, the Altiplano spreads across portions of northern Chile and Argentina, Southern Peru, and western Bolivia.
