La Paleta del Pintor (The Artist's Pallet), in Maimará. PHOTO
This beauty is made by Río Grande crossing the valley (Quebrada) from North to South in almost 200 Km. and the variation in altitude is from 4,000 meters in the north to 1,200 in the south.
Carved in the earth, the bed of the river seems to have been cut by a surgeons knife that shows the different layers of rock of many colours. According to a local legend, God took the colors from the Quebrada when He created the world.
