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.
