Photo: View of Quebrada Paredones towards the NNE. The road leads to the
Maricunga mine. The reddish sediments produce a pleasant colour in the
afternoon. You can almost not believe that the sector is located at
about 4000 meters high.
The photo was taken from the road that connects La Guardia with the Maricunga gold mine - just from the pass altitude that joins the Quebrada Seca with the Quebrada Paredones. The Maricunga Mine's installations on the horizon / right is seen as a small white dot with a good eye.
Here same sector in winter.
