Day 43: And The Wind Still Blows

The dust storm rages.  The passes to Argentina and Bolivia are snowed up.  All of the tours are cancelled.  Most of the roads out of town are closed.  A growing number of people are stuck in San Pedro, unable to do anything except drink tea and watch the sky.

So here we are, waiting for a break in the weather and an end to the snowstorms higher up the road.  In the evening, the storm descends and it begins snowing in San Pedro.

We can't move until precipitation ceases (frozen precipitation, no less) .... in the desert.  The irony.

Perhaps Licancabur will be covered in snow tomorrow and we will have to take a few more photos of it!
