I delayed publishing these photos because I spent countless hours downloading, sorting, editing, and uploading the 1000+ photos I took. I exercised a lot of restraint with the shutter, but I still had that many photos from four days.
Then I had to figure out how I wanted to present them and narrow down the photos. I wanted to do something more creative than Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4.
The result is a series of best photos in the following categories: Landscapes; Animals; Funny, Amusing, and Odd; and finally, the Salar de Uyuni.

This is part of a series of photo essays from my tour through the Bolivian Altiplano starting in Tupiza and ending in Uyuni. If you enjoyed these photos, check out these galleries.
- On the Road: Day 1 – Includes the stunning Quebrada de Pilala and El Sillar just outside of Tupiza and the tiny village of San Antonio de Lipez where we interacted with local children.
- On the Road: Day 2 – This was one of my favorite photography days with sights like Laguna Verde, Licancabur Volcano, a natural hot spring, the Sol de Mañana geysers, flamingos, and the gorgeous red waters of Laguna Colorada.
- On the Road: Day 3 – The wonder continued with the Siloli Desert and its famous Piedra de Arbol (Rock Tree), the active Ollague Volcano, the Camino de las Joyas (Path of the Jewels) with multiple lakes and lots more flamingos, and the salt hotel.
- On the Road: Day 4 – We watched a beautiful sunrise over Isla del Pescado, took our crazy photos in the Salar de Uyuni, and then visited the train cemetery in Uyuni.
