Chile, Pan de Azucar
We dropped off the truck in Antofagasta, got a little Citreon for the rest of the trip, and picked up our friend Erin. We hoped to camp just south of Antofagasta but found that Chile is only open for camping in Dec/Jan/Feb except for in the National Parks, so we went to Pan de Azucar earlier than planned. It's in the Atacama but gets a ton of fog, so there's lots of veg and lichen growing on veg. I walked around with a macro lens, Sara and Erin saw more country, and got better pics, I'll put some of theirs up at some point.
the orange lichen on the spines was very cool
lots of deserted beach campgrounds with palapas
shrine at a fish camp just south of the park
