Vicunas and lamas

La Quiaca, Argentina

First a picture of Purmamarca because the light was not great when I arrived yesterday,

then one from the Tumbaya cemetary that simply a beautifull place on the top of a hill behind the village.
Going then north to the laguna Pozuelos where I plan to camp. On the way could see a lot of lamas and vicunas on the side of the road.
Then when I arrived at the park laguna Pozuelos the guardaparque was not there. I asked in the nearby city and i guy told me that it should be ok if I wanted to camp there. My goal was to stay the night so that in teh morning, with good light, I could see some floyds and other birds. The laguna is at 3750m and the night was ... cold. -2 celsius when the Sunrise at 6:45. During the night I had some visit too. Some vicunas. it was funny to see them running when I point the torch in their direction. It was really worth a picture
