The Attempt

The Attempt - Winter view of volcanoes at Chilean part of Puna de Atacama, The Andes, Chile

It looks like the universe never wanted me to get there. For years I tried but it did not happen. Next attempt is in order then. Volcano Antofalla 6440m – very large, very remote, at the hart of Puna de Atacama on the shores of Salar de Antofalla. So desolate that you can hear echo of your own thoughts. Perfect place to meet my old friend Mephistopheles, isn’t it? The date is set. I am already on my way in the Andes. Some info here.

Docking Station

Docking Station - Aerial paragliding tour of Iquique port, the Atacama Desert, Chile

The very first sign of ending summer is the better flying weather. Of course it is not that good as in high October-November season but we were able to get very high and have an aerial paragliding tour of Iquique port. And the glide of modern high end wing is something you would not expect. It feels like you could fly them to Japan on the other side of Pacific.
