Photo 1. Inquisivi town from the south. The Rio Khatu runs in the valley below. The main road (which eventually goes to Chulumani) can be seen on the other side of the valley, on the left. The groves which are visible near town consist mostly of Eucalyptus trees, whereas the dry forest is lower down the slope. © Jon Hornbuckle.
Bolivian Spinetail Cranioleuca henricae is common in the dry forest in the valley below Inquisivi town (click the small picture to see a larger photo).
Photo 2. The native dry forest in the valley below Inquisivi, consisting mostly of Schinus molle trees. Direction of the photo is northwest. The extensive wet cloud forest near Chojña Khota lies behind the big mountain (the forest which is visible high on those mountains is also wet cloud forest). The main road to Quime is not visible, but runs high along the slope on the left. © Jon Hornbuckle.

Photo 5. High above Inquisivi town at c. 3300 m, facing north. Inquisivi town (at 2800 m) is out of view down the slope to the right, at the same altitude as the main road to Quime of which a short stretch is visible below the center of the photo. Much lower down than Inquisivi, the upper end of the dry forest (at 2300 m) is visible with a short stretch of the main road in it (next to two fields). On the other side of the valley the main road can be seen (it eventually goes to Chulumani). The gravel bed of the Rio Khatu (at 2000 m) is also visible. © Jon Hornbuckle.
Photo 6. High above Inquisivi town at c. 3300 m, looking west to the snow-covered mountains of the Cordillera Quimsa Cruz. The mountains have little snow, because the photo was taken in the dry season (although temperatures are lower than during the rainy season, the sun shines for much of the time and there is little snowfall).
A: the village of Titi Amaya
B: our camp for several days next to the Rio Khatu.
C: the hamlet of Isikuni.
D: the valley of the Rio Milluni.
E: the main road to Quime. The village of Camillaya is around the corner, and not visible.

Photo 7. High above Inquisivi town at about 3300 m, looking southwest and up the valley in the direction of the town of Quime. The main road to Quime and La Paz is visible. The highest mountains in the picture are often covered with some snow during the rainy season, but this picture was taken in the dry season. © Jon Hornbuckle.
