Laguna Negra

Laguna Negra is a big lake in the departamento de Rocha, near Punta del Diablo and Santa Teresa. It's surrounded by pasture and when the nearby ocean beaches were crowded (at the peak of tourist season), we only saw a handful of people at the lake. The shoreline alternates between marshgrass and rocky bluffs. Above the lake, grazing cattle created a parklike network of paths through the brush, leaving behind cactus and thorny bushes.

Laguna Negra's water was black, although the color may have been exaggerated by the strong winds. Earlier in the afternoon, huge strips of eucalyptus bark were flying across the road between Fuerte San Miguel and Chuy.
