One of our group was sick for a day so we spent a rest-day in Huayhuash. (Huayhuash is both the name of the mountain range and the name of a village. Village might be overstating things. There are numerous stone walls/corrals and one, maybe two small stone huts.) While our team member recovered, we day-hiked up to Barroso Cocha (Lake) and spent the noon-hour warming in the sun and admiring the view. This view looks west to Mt. Trepecio from the shores of the small lake.
The low pedestals in the foreground are covered in an unusual, hardy plant that forms an incredibly dense carpet and holds the soil from erosion.
