Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.
-- Joan Chittister

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.
The Incas built steps into the walls.

 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. 

 We started at the top of the area and hiked down to the town of Maras.
