Raw Patagonian horizons stretching all the way to rough coastlines in Newfoundland with myriad wonders harbored in-between: from azure glaciers, altitude canyons and psychedelic lagoon-waters to ash-spewing volcanoes, jungle greens and soaring falls.
glimpse: A SWIM ACROSS THE BRIDGE | If you look close enough you might find that the fine line between imagination and reality is really a bridge. It is neatly inevitable that by the time you’re reading this your hasty eyes have already jumped to the picture and with it to conclusions. The journey has begun. Your eyes carried you away to a Guatemalan dreamscape by the Mayan name of Semuc Champey. They hypnotized you with the tale of turquoise water dividing the jungle and lured you from reality’s solid bank into imagination’s fluid realm. For things aren’t what they seem. The paradoxical title, reminiscent of a surreal dream sequence at first, is actually the signpost to reality here. Follow it and you will see what you’re actually looking at: a bridge. Naturally formed from limestone, it spans 300m wide across the ferociously raging Cahabón River underneath, while shallow pools sit placidly atop. Only by imagining the river, which remains forever tucked away from your eyes, you can see the bridge and swim across it to reality’s bank.
glimpse: AUTUMN SNOW | But winter wasn’t early, nor was autumn late; it was simply a different place, a moody place, where, unbeknownst to him then, snow fell whenever it so pleased.
glimpse: TRUE BLUE HUE | Almost too blue to be true, only few sport a hue like you. But your water doesn’t lie, pretend or cheat, you can pull this color off au naturel Laguna 69, and photo-sensationalists save their filters for duller lagoons, shouting “hashtagnofilter” from the Andean mountaintops.
