holy wood
after i went to salar de uyuni i travelled south to a town called tupiza. i didn't really know what there was to do there, and took a horse riding trip to a nearby canyon. whilst there i met an english dude who had made the journey by foot instead of horse, and then climbed to the top of the canyon. he described the walk and view in such glowing terms that i decided to delay my departure and return the next day. what followed was a difficult, technical and tiring walk/climb that was immensely rewarding. there was a lot of clambering over rocks, and at it's hardest point a really steep climb up really loose rocks in the searing sun. about nine out of any ten given rocks i reached out to pull myself along came off in my hand. i was getting concerned that we might get to an impassable section and then have to try and negotiate our way back down the slippery slope. i persevered upwards and when i made it to the top the view was as brilliant as i'd been promised. i couldn't enjoy it for too long as we saw storm clouds in the distance that were heading our way, so we had to make a quicker descent. this was one of the snaps i took on the way back down, as i was trying to keep ahead of the imminent rain.
