Laguna Colorada, Bolivia, 2010

Salar De Uyuni Tour – Part 12 – Laguna Colorada

Sounds like it should be in the USA. But only for those who refuse to use basic language translation. Laguna Colorada, of course just means “Lake Colour Red” in English. Obvious, especially given the red tint of this naturally picturesque highland lake. This Laguna was a highlight from the Salar de Uyuni jeep trip in Read more about Salar De Uyuni Tour – Part 12 – Laguna Colorada[…]
