Alto las Vizcachas

First semester in Santiago

Hike with Kathi to the outskirts of Santiago, where the buildings stop and trees begin, later to replaced with cacti as the altitude rises.

October 23rd, 2010

Cactus flowers with liquidy cactus flower sugary water inside. Very tasty.

Dry cactus looks really neat.
The smog of Santiago is creeping up the mountain sides, but for a brief moment we are above it.

Adorable horses and a horsito.
Santiago can be seen in the background, but that's probably better to ignore.
Many of the small leafed tree bushes were blooming with flowers of a wonderfully warm yellow hue.
