The Siloli Desert at 4,900m. (16,076.12 ft.), Altiplanos Bolivianos, Potosí, Bolivia.

The Siloli Desert is a desert in the southwest department of Potosí, Bolivia. It is characterized by its rocky formations, resulting from the strong winds that the region has. It is considered as one of the most arid in the world due to the low precipitation in the zone. It is usually integrated into tourist routes, since it is the gateway to the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve and in its vicinity are the famous Colored Lagoons and the Salar de Uyuni.

It is considered as part of the Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world.

It was raining, and after the rain, a snow storm.
Scary.
