Laguna Piedra

At sunset we strolled down to another lake in the Laguna Cejar chain, Laguna Piedra. This lake also has a high salt content, but it reserved for the fauna - no humans allowed. The shore is covered in hard salt crystals which sparkle in the sun.

We saw a flamingo, an Andean goose and some little sandpipers around the lake. The flamingo posed for a beautiful flying-off-into-the-sunset picture.

The colours as the sun set were spectacular, as the light played on the salt crystals and picked up on the red sand of the desert. Volcan Licancabur provided a beautiful backdrop for the lake.
