... a long way down.
With sunbeams casting shadows across the snow we crested the peak shortly after sunrise and were greeted with views stretching for miles in every direction. Different hues for the mountains were evident. In a moment of insanity Anna decided to embrace nature on the top of the mountain as the wind picked up and blew a gale, every so nearly claiming clothes as well as heat.

... a bowl with snowy peaks surrounding us and Chacraraju towering over the others at 6,400m. As we walked a few more metres towards the centre of the bowl, we caught our first glimpse of Laguna 69's electric blue water - it was startling!!
We continued closer to the lagoon and stopped in awe, our breath had been taken away, not just from the altitude of 4,600m but the picture postcard view. Bluebird sky, snowy white mountain peaks and the electric blue glacial water of the ...
