... a sunken forest caused by a tsunami. This has created a haunting landscape where tree tops rise out from the river and are perfectly reflected in its surface. We were on the hunt for river otters but unfortunately nature does not always play ball so we didn't have any sightings. We did see a seal fishing for dinner having swam the 7km's up the mouth of the river from the sea. The river is also home to lots of birds such as herons, and parakeets.

We were all set. We settled down to a nice evening on the patio, with all our snacks and drinks. It wasn't a bad temperature either for an evening, especially after the bitter cold on the Uyuni tour. One layer of summer clothes was enough which made a nice change to the 4 layers of winter clothes we had become used to.
