Day 357 | May 18

Once again had to work in the morning but then set out on a very cool excursion. We went horseback riding out into the Atacama desert. It was about a five hour ride up through the canyon that follows the one tiny river. We camped next to the river and had dinner there. The Atacama desert is the driest climate on the planet and has almost no light pollution so it’s the best place on the planet to see the stars. Couple that with camping out in the middle of a ravine and it was pretty spectacular. Oh, and freezing.
