Atacama Desert 01, Chile/Deserts

Sierra Caballo Muerto is located in the southern region of the Atacama Desert, one of the driest deserts on earth. The very low rainfall has left behind clear and lasting traces. Pale salt clay was deposited in the watercourses as they flowed over the red soil of the Sierra Caballo Muerto, which owes its colour to iron minerals, and the water gradually evaporated in the heat.
