Trip Reports: Travels In Northern Chile - October 2011

In late October we rented a 4x4 pickup truck in Antofagasta and spent two weeks driving through remote regions of northern Chile including San Pedro de Atacama and the Atacama desert, Lauca National Park, Salar de Surire, and more. Here are my favorite photos from our travels through this desolate and fascinating region.
