Huaraz, Peru

I am in Huaraz, Peru acclimatizing to elevation. Yesterday I did a hike up to 14,600 feet at Laguna Churup yesterday. The day before we hiked to a Wilacacocha Lake at 12,500. Today is a rest day in Huaraz, Tomorrow, we drive to the start of our 9-day, 65-mile Cordillera Huayhuash trek. Our highest elevation will be a pass at about 16,600 feet. I will be traveling with a Canadian couple and guide. There will also be a cook, a horseman, and several donkeys. Very exciting!

There is very little English spoken here. I am fumbling through a crash course in Spanish. Amusing. 🙂

Click here for some photos from the past few days around Huaraz.

I have been meeting people. It is almost magical the way you meet certain people. Some you meet and and then you find them sitting beside you on the airplane or in the same hotel or on the same hike. I found a consistent circle of connected friends for a few days here in Huaraz. Very nice.
It is morning …and I am drinking a cup of coffee in my hotel.
