Every year around October and November, the most spectacular little crack in the Earth opens up in the Andes Mountains of central Chile. Surrounded by desert mountains and plains, cacti, and rose hair tarantulas, the little canyon is packed with one of the highest concentrations of perfect waterfalls found anywhere on the planet. The unique geology, formed by fire and carved by ice creates the perfect playground of smooth igneous rock that was shaped by moving glaciers. Surprisingly attainable even by average kayakers, this run is one of the reasons Chile quickly became a mecca for whitewater kayaking. Although I lost a majority of my footage on a corrupt external drive, I recently pulled together a few recovered clips from this gorgeous special place and had to share.
