Colca Canyon [May. 20th, 2011|07:05 pm]
The Image Collector

Misti Volcano. One of the last images I took before the altitude sickness hit.


Alpaca grazing in wetlands at 14,000 ft.


The lady I bought a couple of scarves from after throwing up at 16,000 ft (the highest point of the road.)


I didn't get any good shots of the condors, although I did enjoy watching them. This is an Andean Eagle.

And finally, me with the eagle on my head. See my face? That's the giant bruise I got when I passed out in the street while throwing up for the third time from altitude sickness. Then I slept for 14 hours before heading out to see the condors.

Wow Dave! I don't know whether to be more impressed with the eagle on your head or the bruise on your face.

And I'm not sure which to be more embarrassed by, since I didn't ask for either.
