This is an archaeological site in Peru in the Sacred Valley region near Cuzco.  The elevation is around 11,500 feet at this site, so it wasn’t the highest point during our trip.  This unusual Inca ruins, consists of several enormous terraced circular depressions.  The largest one of the group is approximately 100 feet deep.  Today, it is unclear what the purpose of this site was built by the Incas.  The theory today is that the Incas used this to study the effects of different climatic conditions on crops.  

Regardless of the original purpose, the site makes for a very unique location and one I am glad we had a chance to see.  The picture won’t come close to really being there in person, but I hope you enjoy it.
