Photographer's Note

This was taken during the same trek in Lares Valley in Peru as one of previous post, also see workshop for another shot.

Nope, we were not the early people arriving at the camp site first. We were the only two. Actually this is not even a camp site. There was none, you just pick a spot to rest for the night. Thatís how remote it is.

Lares Valley Trek: For those wanting to experience the incredible beauty and rich culture of the Andes by taking the less-traveled route. Authentic encounters with Quechua communities and the spectacular scenery that surrounds them give these treks a wonderful blend of tradition and splendor.
Passing through the rich pastoral regions of the Cordillera Urubamba, we traverse high mountain peaks and sub-tropical valleys, stopping along the way to enjoy scenic lagoons, natural hot springs, and Inca remains. The remoteness of the area has allowed its people to preserve traditions of llama and alpaca herding, potato cultivation, and colorful weaving dating back to the Incas. These fascinating treks offer a first-hand look at the life of the Andean farmer and a journey into a region of outstanding beauty.
