This Desert Lagoon Is No Mirage
Amid the rolling sand dunes of this Peruvian desert, an oasis springs from nowhere, adding life to the landscape. Legend has it that the lagoon was created when a princess fled her would-be captor and left the water she had been bathing in, which became the lagoon. Today, this naturally occurring oasis has a surrounding village, Huacachina, with a population of about 100 residents.
