CPCD #2 – Ausangate

This is my second CPCD post Рthis time from the city of Cusco, Peru.

Ian Plant and I just completed a four day, 40 mile trek to Peru’s Ausangate, one of the most sacred of mountains to the Incan people. This trek involved some serious high altitude hiking, with two passes along the trail exceeding 16,000 feet in elevation. This crappy phone cam image shows our tent on the first night of our trek. Neither of the two mountains shown in the background of the image are that of Ausangate, but I promise there will be later after I return home on the 18th.

Tomorrow, Ian flies back to the States while I hitch a train from Cusco to Machu Picchu. More to come later. Thanks for having a look.
