    Very interesting image. But I'm trying to guage the scale of what I'm looking at-- how big are each of those "boxes"?

    Awesome! That's one of the places we wanted to see but didn't get to while in Peru, I wish we had.

    The size of boxes, i say, have the same size of another boxes (platforms) like those on Machu Picchu. All the mount is staggered.

    Brayo - Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it. Each of these boxes are approximately 5m square (58 feet square). They are terraced up the side of a steep hill and are fed from a stream that originates from the ground that is highly concentrated with salt. Very cool place to visit.

    bikehitscar - Thank you, I appreciate it. Yes, this was one of the best places that we went to while in Peru. The area surrounding Maras was absolutely gorgeous! We will definately return. Take care!
