Heading home

Last night of this extended vacation before a 36 hr enduro air port a thon to get back to Anchorage. It´s been an amazing trip. Packed a lot in that´s for sure. The Illimani / Qusima Cruz traverse was an increadible route with all it´s many ups and downs. Those Andes I tell you... Since then we´ve gotten a taste of the Altiplano rainy season in Sajama which basically consisted of ¨run but you can´t hide¨ hail and lightening storms, then after that some much needed down time hiking into warmer climes in the Yungas.
Photos soon!

Back in La Paz after a great 4 day loop around Sorata. No pictures to post.. sorry. I dont trust my memory card to sketchy public computers!

Basically climbed all day to 13,000´and took an abandoned road that short cutted the tops of numerous valleys and ridge lines over to another village. Then came back on a low road which contoured all the valleys we passed over. Super Dramatic vertical relief.

Julie is fighting a stomach bug and I´m already on Cipro for the same... so we are back in La Paz resting and re-stocking up for a 10-12 day trip to Cochabamba via the south slopes of Illimani and the Quisma Cruz range.
