Photo of the Day: Llamas & Alpacas In Northern Chile

The Andes

Llamas & Alpacas Crossing The Road in Northern Chile's Altiplano

Llamas, alpacas and vicunas roam Northern Chile’s Altiplano. Most of them are domesticated, except vicunas, which remain wild and often a protected species. These animals produce incredible wool fabrics, especially the vicuna. While traveling in South America, you might also want to taste llama or alpaca steak. This photo was taken during our 3-day road trip throughout Northern Chile’s Altiplano.

Great photo–what is their gaze focused on?

Us and our truck. They look for a while and then run off.
