The Cordillera de la Sal in the Cordillera Domeyko Range of Chile
Cordillera De La Sal Chile
This subrange of the Andes runs north-south, parallel with the Chilean coast. Pictured here is Cordillera de l. A. Sal ('Salt Range). Going a little farther west closer to the Pacific coast places travelers in the Atacama Desert, a place so dry and at this sort of high elevation, that NASA has used it to simulate Mars.
