    ... the abundant bird life - coots, two kinds of ducks, Andean gulls and many smaller birds. Unfortunately in wet season, cloud builds up on most days, and tends to hug the craters of the volcanoes. Today was no exception. This put an end to plans to photo the mountain on the lake. Oh well, the weather was good for us yesterday, so it all evens out. There had been quite a lot of snow (unseasonable) the night before and much of it was unmelted as we wandered ...

    ... Putre and the highest volcano in the region, Vulca, Taapaca, and Parinacota, again dormant. This picture perfect conical volcano sits at 6400m. We were now at over 4000m on a fairly flat landscape surrounded by mountains. This is the altiplano, and it was magnificent.

These were of llamas and a shepherd and are believed to be Inca (about 550 years old). Then on to the museum dedicated to the study of the indigenous people of this region. Most notably, this museum studies the oldest known practitioners of mummification, ...

    ... hour from Putre, but the stoppages due to road construction and the heavy traffic from all of the Bolivian truckers slowed us down. We got out several times to take photos of the breathtaking landscape, too. It ended up taking us two and a half hours to get to the far edge of the lake--or at least as close to the far edge as we were willing to get. When we got close, we found ourselves at a complete stop in a very long line of trucks waiting to cross ...

    ... before heading back down. We were out in the hills for about 6 hours. Exhausted from altitude sickness, we shared a bag of crisps and went to bed. After 13 hours sleep, we were more hopeful and armed today. We downed 2 cups of coca tea, the recommended antidote to altitude sickness and set on our travels by car up the pass towards Bolivia to the Parque Nacional Lauca. The combination of the thin air and pot holed and bumpy highway ...
