Remarks & Notes 
An aptly named location

Back in Chile! This little stream is the aptly named Rio de la Sal i.e. "River of the Salt". The closest railroad siding is also called Rio de la Sal. At first we thought that this odd looking water stream was the consequence of rejections from the highly contaminated Potrerillos copper mine area. We later learnt that this is just the natural result of the salted minerals that are abundant in the Atacama region. I'll be back in Chile in Aug 2010 and I'm looking forward to it!
