Our last day dawned bright and early and COLD! That morning Rudi found a bottle of Coca Cola that had the six inches of liquid in it frozen solid.

The "Man Made" Geyser

There also were the bubbling mud spots that reminded me of Yellowstone.
|Bubbling Hot Mud!|

|This mountain range was in Argentina!|
|Another gorgeous mountain range!|
And then it was time to head back to Uyuni. It was five more hours of tedious driving to get back. On the way we say lots of Llama and lots more fields of Quinoa!
|Inside the Jeep that we dubbed "the torture chamber" for various reasons!!!|
Lydia rode in this Jeep the whole time...She deserves a prize!
The other thing we saw a lot of the whole trip, was an animal like Alpaca and Llamas, only wild and smaller. They ate what seemed like invisible plants in the lava/sandy soil. Our driver jokingly said that they eat dirt, because you couldn't see what they were eating at some points. We couldn't take very close up pictures, because like anything wild they would start to run away!

Waiting for the Midnight Train! (sounds like a song title!)

We arrived home by noon and Tia Techy had a great lunch waiting for us. It was good to see the babies again after being gone for almost five whole days. Our kids especially had missed being with the babies!
It had been an unforgettable journey. We are so thankful that the Lord kept us safe throughout and that we were able to experience more of His AMAZING creation here in Bolivia!
