Chile 2020

12/23/2020: Woke up early and headed into the mountains for a full day of hiking around. I thought I would cross a creek, but the creek was quite deep in the middle, and I ended up with my phone wet. Later, I saw a spot upstream where there were some very dirty looking mining tailings draining into the same creek I just swam in.
