    The first stop on our 2-day trek into the Colca canyon was a viewpoint over the canyon, supposedly the best place to spot Condors, an eagle like bird with a wing-span of 3m! We were lucky and saw one up close and Paddy got some great photos! The first day was obviously downhill and quite ************* the knees but we had a good guide who stopped us regularly to point out native fruit, plants and cacti. At the end of the trek we arrived at the base of this area of canyon to ...

    I decided to do the walk again to the Cruz del Condor. Sunny day, so, hat and sunscreen. But I know the mountains here, so also rain poncho and a warm sweater in the backpack.
    I took the same way up, except a little shortcut that the people here had showed me: shorter but steeper. Good training for my Inca Trail in ten days! This time I did not meet any mice family, I just enjoyed the views! Last time most of it ...

    ... lower we passed under the cloud and got a full view of the canyon. It was incredible and we also got to see many condors flying above and below us which made up the earlier disappointment. After we crossed the river and climbed part way up the other side we stopped in a small village for lunch. In the afternoon we walked to a beautiful oasis where we spent the night. After a few beers by the pool, some mangos fresh from the ...

    ... helpful for high altitude nausea and keeping drivers "alert" . Marg and I have our first cups hanging onto the coca leaves just in case we need to chew a few as we climb higher. As we level off for a twenty km stretch or so we stop to view a few dozen of the seventy thousand wild vulcanas, relatives to the lamas and alpacas. These unique looking creature now live in a protected area free from poaching and hunting. Once a year they are " hand ranched " into pens ...

    Hot time in Colca

    ... was bigger than the little settlements we had passed through on the way here but you couldn't call it a town of substance. In terms of infrastructure it was a town of two halves.  Laid out in a grid, there were a number of concrete paved streets interspersed with mud and gravel tracks wide enough for one vehicle to pass down. Likewise the buildings were a mix of stone/brick ones at the upper end of status and those made of dried mud at the other end. The main square is ...
