Lake Aculeo Dries Up
Laguna de Aculeo has long been a popular summer destination for residents of Santiago, Chile. Tucked into a valley less than two hour’s drive from the capital, the shallow lake has been a haven for boaters, swimmers, and water skiers for decades. Its water once spread across an area four times the size of New York’s Central Park and had a depth of 6 meters (20 feet). But by April 2019, all of the water was gone, replaced by a crust of dried mud and a blanket of green vegetation.
