5/9/2013. We started our second day of hiking to acclimate at the Moray ruins located at 11,500 feet. It is thought that this may have been an agricultural testing station in that the temperature between the top and bottom circle may vary as much as 27 degrees.
This is Mt. Victoria, 18,000,our companion through most of the trip. Taken from Moray.
Our second hike was at the Salt Pans (ponds) of Maras. Since pre-Incan times, salt has been collected by diverting a highly salty stream into these evaporation ponds.
