Andes Mountains & Laguna Miscanti

In the foothills above the Chile's Atacama desert is Laguna Miscanti. Foothills is a bit of a misnomer as the floor of the Atacama desert is at 7,900' and the lake surface of Laguna Miscant is ~13,500'. The volcanos in the background are all 16,000+ in height. The lake water is very saline as are most lakes in the Atacama.
