Trekking in the Cordillera Blanca

Early morning light touches Alpamayo peak on the Santa Cruz trek.

Early morning sun and clouds on Peak Paron.

Sunrise colors at their finest. Nevado Artesonraju.

Sunrise on Quitaraju Peak.


Tim at our high knoll campsite in the Alpamayo valley,
overlooking mountains all around.

I can never resist a swim in clean, blue water, even if it is breathtakingly cold glacier water!

. . . while Tim can barely stand getting his feet wet.

Glowing, golden sunset on the peaks above Valley Paria.

Reflections. Nevado Taulliraju.

Huascaran Norte Peak at sunset, near Laguna 69.

Most babies are carried on the back in these colorful clothes.

A parade for the patron Saint in Huaraz.
