thanks, this desert it's a natural park for some animals (the main is the "vicuña", I don't know the traslation: you can see some of it in the other picture).

This is taken in the road to Colca Canyon from Arequipa, normal itinerary for all the tourist of Peru.

If you like the volcanos you must to see the most beautiful of the spanish volcanos in a place very similar: Teide

"Vicuña" doesn't translate, it retains the Spanish spelling and pronunciation in English. The closest thing most Americans are familiar with to a vicuña is a llama--a vicuña is basically a more delicate form of the llama, and the wool is much finer and more valuable (although I do not believe it is legal to harvest this wool.) Under the Inca empire only the Inca (emperor) could have articles made of vicuña wool, if anybody else was found with it they were put to death.

thanks, I taked a lot of pictures of vicuñas, llamas and alpacas (more little than llama) in my trip to Perú. The most difficult to take a picture it's the guanaco (danger of exctintion in nowadays, I don't see no one)
