No…. I don’t wanna leave….
Quick update on my plans in my remaining 12 days….. (EEK! how did this happen? why did this happen?! no……)
I am in Huaraz, the climbing and trekking capital of Peru (think Touching the Void mountains…..). I spent the day yesterday getting organized for a trek. Opted tonot do the Huayhuash circuit (mountains of Touching the Void) because it would be a little rushed and expensive and long to do solo – and the season is not right (it is on the bucket list…high on the bucket list – like kind of kills me to not be doing it now… ).
I am going to do two shorter treks in the Cordillera Blana after consulting with a local guide who gave me all sorts of beta and recommendations. I spent the day collecting food and gas, etc. for my first 4 day trek but it rained ALL day. It was actually quite miserable. So, I decided to spend another day in Huaraz before trekking — let the snow up on the high pass settle. Of course I woke this morning to amazing blue skies…. but he guide promised to show me some great stuff close to town.
So, hoping tomorrow is good weather when I leave for another solo trek (go me!).
