Triton Spotted in Chile

Jul 28, 2019 by To the Triton

Atacama Salt Lake in northern Chile is 2,400m (7,200 feet) above sea level in a landscape filled with “snow-capped volcanoes, altiplano lagoons, and flamingos – a very different, but amazing landscape,” wrote Carlos Miquel, regional director of SASYS.

He said the salt flat is about 100km (62 miles) long and 80km (50 miles) wide and that the town of San Pedro de Atacama is “a great destination for yacht guests or crew that are traveling along the Chilean coast.”
