Mummified cow

Mummified cow

Mummified cow at Laguna Verde. It looks like it died fairly recently, but it actually died more than 70 years ago. The air is so dry and usually cold that it just dries out and freezes everything, so nothing really decays.

This is a very strange sight. I recall similar desiccated corpses on Aconcagua, but those were mules. I did not see this particular cow when I was there.
