  • This is a viscacha, which only lives in the rocky areas of the Andes. It's a bit like a rabbit, but it has a long tail. There is a better picture of another one a little later in this set.
  • This rock apparently looks like a turtle.

  • Another viscacha. If you look in the lower left, through the gap in the cactus, you can see one of its babies.

  • I had a really hard time getting my camera to get a decent picture of this waterfall. In the end I used a really large aperture, which is why all spray from the water so visible.

  • This is the main square in Torotoro. Everything else in this town is really dilapidated, so it seems really out of place.
  • A pair of Aplomado falcons.
  • Some sauropod dinosaur tracks, possibly Diplodocus.
  • Carnivorous dinosaur track. The three shadows on the left are the toes.
  • A two toed dinosaur track, possibly some sort of coelurosaur?

  • The waterfall where we ate lunch and had time to swim.
  • Looking downstream from our lunch spot. Just past those boulders there was a small waterfall with a big pool at the bottom. After someone jumped from the top so I it was deep enough, I jumped as well.

  • This little one came to clean up after we at lunch.
  • The small pool where most people were swimming.

  • This dog came with another group, but fell asleep and got left behind. He didn't seem to concerned and clearly knew the way home.
  • Our guide said, "árbol loco!" Which translates to crazy tree!
  • Our guide victor, joking that we were walking on a dinosaur spine.

  • Three of us from the group swam into this crevice and climbed over a bolder to see a really cool waterfall. Totally awesome, but the water was really cold and I was in mild shock by the time I got out.

  • About fifteen minutes after I took this picture, the storm caught up with us. Luckily we just got the edge of it, so it wasn't too bad. Later that night I saw the lightning from this storm striking two to five seconds apart... This went on for hours! I have never seen a thunderstorm so intense.
