Cusco, where we started, is at about 2500 meters above sea level (8200 feet). The highest point that we crossed during our adventure was about 5000 meters (16,400 feet). I have no idea how many miles we walked, but the numbers are not what matter. Carrying all of our belongings on our back, it was a difficult trek up mountain range after mountain range. However, we just had to look at the incredible beauty that surrounded us and take one step at a time, and even Gael's 53 year-old mother made the trek!
Since pictures say a thousand words, I am going to say no more.....please enjoy some of my photos!
