We headed to some high altitudes, and took a trip to Lagunas Miñiques and Miscanti. I'd been here a few weeks earlier, and at 4000m there had been plenty of snow. We couldn't drive right to the lagoons, so we had a short hike over the snow to get to a place where we could see them. Today, all that snow had gone. We drove down to Laguna Miñiques, which we hadn't even been able to hike to before, and then to Miscanti. A lone vicuña was drinking from the lake in the distance.
