Village of Turi22°14'7.23"S, 68°16'57.33"W Elevation: 3080m (10109 ft)
When we arrived at the Village of Turi, it was the first time we had seen naturally occurring water since Antofagasta - and we were anxious to jump in and wash the dust off!
Looking west, we could still see the smelting plume from the Chuquicamata mine over sixty kilometers away.
