The Nacimiento, (spring) has moved and is now here. !
This is looking downstream and marks the first flowing water in El Rio.
From inside the mountain the water flows out in this stream.
I am now going to take you down the river. Levels are very low.
These are what are left of the "love" pools at the top of the river.
A few meters down from the love pools we have a small amount of water - not very deep. !
Not a lot of water.
See Machu Pitchu - our small "lion heart" dog.
It is sad to see so little water.
And then - no water.
The river is now fragmented, broken, no flow.
The break is of about 20 meters and then we have water again.
some water is better than no water. !
So, this is how it is.
This is the deepest point at about 1,75 meters deep
I met tourists here at this pool. The pictures before this one come from the more inaccessible areas of El Rio.
