Torotoro

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.

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.

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.

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.
