Pacific Coast - part 5
Road from Puquio to Yauca
While stopping close to the ocean, I stumbled upon this peculiar fishing area. I don't know which kind of shell they are, but I think it was fairly excessive fishing.
Toro Muerto Petroglyphs
Toro Muerto is a superb site for anyone that likes to discover ancient petroglyphs. Their origin is still a mystery to this day, but some archeologists think they were created around AD 800.
I am showing a lot of photos, but we have to acknowledge the fact that researchers have been able to document more than 5000 petroglyphs. So, in all honesty, I don't have many pictures.
The petroglyphs are spread over a very dry region, in the desert. Look at the panorama that follow to get an idea about the site. Among all these boulders, from time to time, there is an ancient rock drawing. I went around for three hours, and I am certain I missed several of them.
Road from Camaná to the border
Driving toward the border, I improvised this wild campsite above a cliff, close to the ocean.
