This is where they were, easy to miss, but Doris spotted them.


Always alert, they live in the many crevices in the rock walls and are accustomed to crowds of people.

Hotel Inkaterra dining room at Aguas Calientes. This is a beautiful hotel.


Spectacled (Andean) Bear at the sanctuary on Inkaterra Hotel grounds. The hotel participates in a rescue and reintroduction program. One of the bears had been rescued from a circus. If able, the bears progress to semi-captivity and eventually to release back to the wild. Vince and Fern Riddell went on the tour and photographed this bear.
