I could have called this tip “The road to El Tatio” because that indeed is where these photos were taken, but of course they were all taken on the return trip to San Pedro de Atacama, as on the way to the geysers it was far too dark to see anything but stars. Bumping along in the dark I was totally unaware of the beauty of the landscape that surrounded us, so it was especially wonderful to see it in all its glory on the return trip.

Most of the photos I've included with this review were taken between El Tatio and the Putana valley, while the one with the road sign was taken just after leaving the wetlands. I managed to take all of these from the moving bus, as well as quite a few that were rather less successful, owing to the bumps in the road and reflections in the bus windows!
