Isla del Sol-Bolivia

Bright reflections bounced off of the water. I lay on the bow of the small launch as we gradually moved across the inland ocean of Lake Titicaca. The water stretched to the horizon which was topped by large glaciated peaks floating above clouds. We were heading to the Isle of the Sun, a barren brown mound in the middle of the deepest blue green, birthplace of the Sun God. Keeping my face turned towards the sun and feeling its warmth, the small waves lulled me. Just as my eyes began to close a cold spray would shake me from the suns trance and I would dip my hand into the water as the bow broke the waves. Lake Titicaca, Bolivia (12,500ft)
