Modelling the desert

    Newer Older

    Moon Valley, San Juan, Argentina
    The Moon Valley is one of the driest areas of Argentina. Here, the forces of the desert, wind, temperature amplitude and some sporadic rains modeled the elevated sandstone blocks creating not only amazing and beautiful geoforms but also uncovering one of the most important paleontologic sites of the world. This is the only place where the WHOLE TRIASSIC PERIOD is documented!

    Valle de la Luna (Ischigualasto), San Juan, Argentina.
    El Valle de la Luna es uno de los lugares mas secos de la Argentina. Aqui, las fuerzas del desierto, el viento, la amplitud termica y las esporadicas pero fuertes lluvias han modelado los bloques elevados de areniscas no solo creando increibles y hermosas geoformas sino tambien revelando uno de los sitios paleontologicos mas importantes del mundo. Aqui es el unico lugar en el mundo donde se encuentra documentado TODO el PERIODO TRIASICO!!!

      Stunning It almost looks like some kind of a pillar! Most people are familiar with the canyonlands and national parks of the American Southwest, but this area is just as beautiful.
