  the elusive vicuna
by richiecdisc

The ride to the Colca Canyon is beautiful and you see some varied terrain along with some rare wildlife as you pass through Reserva Nacional Salinas y Aguada Blanca. Vicunas are wild cousins to llamas and alpaccas. Their fur is the most expensive and warm material known to man and it was nice to finally get close enough to one to snap a photo.

Directions: It was the first stop in the National Reserve.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
