Photographer's Note

In my last post I said I would show more photos of the Salkantay Trek, and I'll keep that promise as I will alternate the photos.

Here we have another Moai Statue on Easter Island. I really wanted to get a photo where it shows the details in the stone and I think this one does that fairly well.

The Moai were carved out of a nearby volcano. At the volcano itself you can see 2 Moai were still 'in progress' during the carving stage - very cool indeed as you can see the figures shaped right into the side of the volcanic rock.

This Moai here is very tall, much taller than me! My guess is he's about 15 feet - some reached heights of 35 feet.

Hope you like it
Cheers
