Sunny today for the extra-long, seemingly-vertical hike up to our final campsite before the ruins. Made for great pictures. We're seeing different plants and bugs than on the other side of the valley - apparently this valley is its own microecosystem.
Hard jaunt, lots and lots of uphill and we tourists were very sore from yesterday. We arrived in the early afternoon, set up the tents, and proceeded to fall asleep on the grass for an hour. What a place to do it, though, overlooking a gorgeous valley and snowy peaks in the distance.
