Desert High

Here we are, running the dunes of Atacama with our hearts pumping and our boots filled with sand. This place is lunar-like with mind-blowing vistas that provide hints of exciting excursions in the days ahead. The Atacama, a virtually rainless plateau in northwest Chile, is considered the driest place on Earth. This desert, made famous recently by the lucky 33 miners freed after two months of entrapment under some 2,000 feet of rock, is where we're hanging our hats for the next few days. Today was Day One and the fun has just begun. --Diane
