Situated in the north of the nation of Chile lies one of the most extreme environments on Planet Earth. The Atacama Desert.

What makes the Atacama Desert so unique isn’t its size or its temperature, it is the amount of precipitation it gets….or rather the lack thereof.

It is precipitation that defines what a desert is, and by that logic, the Atacama is the most desert-y of all the deserts.
