The village of Corral Blanco, home of Rita, where we found many beautiful llamas.

The mountains behind the Vicuña Station get a dusting of snow.

Alfredo and daughter, Flor, watch the catch of a big red female.

Looking back down the switchback donkey trail where we almost got stuck.

Our rented Toyota 4x4.  Guillermo's turn in the back.

We view a herd in a small corral built against the cliff.  Alfredo in the foreground.

Ancient petroglyph of a pregnant llama carved into the stone face behind the corral.

Women working on a llama-wool weaving.

We arrive at Aguas Calientes to spend the night.  The little town is empty.

Inside one of the stone huts we have a cup of mate (ma-tay) tea.

Sally prepares our evening meal...

...while Fidel and Alfredo watch expectantly.

The next morning the llamas began to arrive from all directions.
