The Southern Andes

I've never been to the Andes Mountains.

Over 4000 miles of snow capped mountains rising up to 13,000 feet, looking out over a vast ocean. Apparantly, every year, some of the Incan people of the Southern Andes climb the mountain to greet the sun. They set out candles and say prayers of thanks for the coming snows. At times, there are even llama races!

That I'd like to see.
