14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Singing to the Gods
We hiked up Chacraraju Mountain for six hours to reach Lagoon 69. Christian was our guide. While the rest of us sat and took pictures, he quietly took out his flute, removed his shoes, and began playing a traditional song that he later explained was for the Gods he worships.
