Salar de Uyuni

Today I went on a tour of the area around Uyuni including the Train Cemetery and the Salar

The train cemetery is a popular stop for tourists



Old steam boiler







Looking back into Uyuni



On the way to the Salar







The Salar

January is the wettest month in Bolivia. There had been a solid three dyas of rain here and thus some of the Salar is wet. Three days of sunshine has dried out most of it however.

Panorama, click to enlarge





I saw two bikes coming and looking through the lens I see it is Kyle and Trevor. I tried to wave them down but hey didn't see me.

We are going to ride the Lagunas route tomorrow. We'll be camping for at least one night and who knows when the next internet connection will be.

See y'all in 3 or 4 days

See some similarity here? Are you under cover Dave? (Or is it Mike?)

Please don't take offense to this bit of levity, but I know you are close to the end and keeping your spirits up is always good. Keep smiling, keep posing, and stay safe.

Were you able to catch any of the Dakar riders today? What a spectacle it must be! Exciting!

Saw some Dakar vehicles today mostly service trucks on the highway in transit. They are pretty cool

Made it through the Lagunas Route unscathed and am now in San Pedro de Atacama Chile. I'll get to a post about the last few days ASAP.
I took a ton of photos

They are in Calama Chili tonite and off to the coast tomorrow, so I'll bet you'll see them again.
