INTO THE ALTIPLANO

CHILE

We went to South America’s Altiplano, the mountainous desert region crossing the borders of Chile, Argentina, and Bolivia, looking for water in the driest place on earth. Pulling kayaks behind, which sounds either Quixotic, or foolhardy. During six weeks we traveled from sea level to 20,000 feet and ultimately found More than just signs of water. After all, man has scratched out a living here for More than 10,000 years, longer than anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere, suggesting there must be water out there somewhere.
