De Checacupe #1

Checacupe is a district in Peru of high mountains and villages. Alpaca, as in the previous two photos graze on the hillsides. This is also the region of Rainbow Mountains, which I wanted to see. Our guide drove my Daughter and I to where the trail started, 4787.34 meters (15706.5 ft.) above sea level. We started out hike in the snow.
Note: the car we came up in is parked at the right edge of the photo.

    Looks great with the fallen snow and a great view on this barren landscape too.

    Great view on those mountains.
    The fallen snow makes it look pretty cold.....

    impressive untouched looking scenery, but one does see several paths
    going through it .... a great adventure to hike here, and the falling snowflakes
    show up quite well !!!
