04/07/12 - Tatio Geysers (Part 2 - Around the Thermal Basin)

It was a long walk around the thermal field, but there was always something interesting. There were pools of boiling hot water, geysers spurting from pools or holes in the ground, bubbling pools of hot mud and, of course, the mountains around us.
