15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Frailejones on Páramo de Siecha

Marvelous nature. This place is near 4000 msnm. The most fragile and important plants in the páramo is the frailejón, which grows only 1 cm per year and blooms only once a year. Climbing the The hills we could see the 3 lagoons and the steep rocks that surround them, in spite of the rain and the strong wind.
