Cuzco - Puno Border

Crossing from the Cuzco province (basically the same thing as a state) to the Puno province means passing this spot in the Andes Mountains.  This was the highest elevation we experienced in Peru at a little over 14,100 feet.  I can tell you that it was a little hard to breath.  Not terrible, but you could feel it. 

Anyway, we stopped at this spot for a few minutes to look at the roadside vendors and take in the view of this amazing mountain range.  My picture doesn’t do justice to this beautiful spot.  Sorry I can’t give you a picture to match the real world experience of standing there.  Regardless, I hope you enjoy it.
