The cathedral-like rocks have a
strange presence that violates human concepts of scale.
Our ten-mile hike over well-constructed trails was a journey through an enchanted
wonderland of half-recognizable shapes and spaces. (Click here to view the 36

but we never succeeded in spotting this canny animal. However,
on the morning of our departure, our heavy ice chest was pried open
and a steak devoured -- unobserved by the two exhausted INHL researchers,
shown below. Our goal of photographing the coati
will have to wait until another day. Click and scroll the pictures
