Winter lagunas

Laguna Helada and Cerro Curutu, Pampa Loyoques, Puna de Atacama, ChileI really did not think that we would beat last’s year record of night camping temperature. But we did. It was -21°C near volcano Cerro Granada. But days were relatively warm, which gives daily temperature amplitudes of well over 30°C. And many of the remote lakes of Puna de Lipez we visited were not frozen at all due to their very high salinity and the hot springs which constantly feed them.
