Nazca - The Hummingbird by TarJakArt Nazca - The Hummingbird by TarJakArt
In the Peruvian Desert, about 200 miles south of Lima, there lies a plain between the Inca and Nazca (sometimes also spelled Nasca) Valleys. Across this plain, in an area measuring 37 miles long and 1-mile wide, is an assortment of perfectly-straight lines, many running parallel, others intersecting, forming a grand geometric form. In and around the lines there are also trapezoidal zones, strange symbols, and pictures of birds and beasts all etched on a giant scale that can only be appreciated from the sky.

While visiting Peru last month I was lucky enough to have the opportunity for a flight over the area.

This is the Hummingbird.

That must have been an awesome experience to see these first hand.

It certainly was.  Until you've visited, its hard to grasp the size and extent and remoteness of the lines.  It really is something that needs to be experienced.
