Geysers del Tatio - Sofía & James
Having Fun at the Geysers! : My friend Sofía and I took a vacation from Santiago Chile to the North (San Pedro de Atacama). We had a 4am wake up call to trek out to the famous Geysers del Tatio. With freezing morning winds we were dressed for the part. Despite the horror stories of a young German girl who’d dies a few years back after falling into one of the geysers and burning to death in scolding thermal waters, we decided to have fun! This shot was taken in the midst of being frozen like popsicles yet making the best of it with a smile and a kick!
