Atacama Desert photos
(Glen Snyder)

Journeying through the Atacama desert, a land where wars had been fought to secure the world's only saltpeter deposits just over a century ago. Now there are only ghost towns, abandoned since the 1920s. We stopped by the cemeteries where the wooden crosses are the only remains of a cruel life in the desert. Of the flowered wreaths that once adorned the cemetery, only wire hoops remain.
