When viewing the village from the top of the ruins, there is a nearby mountain behind and slightly to the left of the village. Several storage sheds were built by the Inca to store their harvest. Legend has it that a face is carved into the mountain to ward off would be thieves and evil spirits. Look at the photo labeled "scarecrow" closely and you can see a snarling face looking to your left, with the remains of a storage shed on either side of the face.
On our return to Cusco, we followed the rim of the Andes and were rewarded with some spectacular views of the mountains, glaciers, and the valley below. With the sun setting, we hurried back to Cusco. Tomorrow's the big day!
