Adventures in Peru – Hiking alone at 15,000 Plus Feet in the High Andes

The first day was nice – early morning and scenic. The trail was just wide enough for 2 people to walk side by side and there were plenty of animal tracks to walk on. The trail followed the river downstream, through scrub areas and allowed me to see an excellent waterfall 100 feet or more high. The second day, the trail got narrower and the waterfall became a Checking Falls. หนังใหม่ดูฟรี Each of these days had numerous small falls and one day the line of drops extended down the side of the creek bed to the Holiday Creek and small waterfalls.

He’s never sure whether it was a Big Horn or Hoolock that bit him but he was dared to grab for his pocket knife. both of them are common in the Andes and are victim to accidental spillage from hikers and backpackers.

Are you wondering about the size of the umbrella? Well I changed the size of my waterproof umbrella after my third trip. At that time I could walk around pretty much anywhere and sleep anytime.
