Caption: This photograph captures the exotic volcanic terrain of the Altiplano of the Central Andes. Some of the remarkable details include the west-pointing wind streaks, resulting from fine dust being transported across the Andes by the high winds; paleo (old) shorelines along the margins of the salars (or dry lake beds), recording the changes in water levels on the high Altiplano; beautiful alluvial fans emptying onto some of salars; and the hundreds of volcanic land forms which can be mapped and interpreted to help decipher the volcanic history of the region.
