Alpamayo Expedition #1 Begins
The team is finaly in the capital of Peruvian Andinismo! After a late arrival into Lima due to a flight cancellation out of Houston, we made it to Lima just on time to grab some rest and be headed for the bus. Yesterday, and 8h bus drive towards the Andes, over 12,000ft high mountain roads put us in Huaraz in the late afternoon. The town greeted us with light rain and covered skies that prevented us from seen the “rajus” or snow covered peaks, as named in the local Quechua languaje.
This morning, we enjoyed a great breakfast at Olaza´s rooftop, with views of ther majestic Huascaran, Huandoy and Ranrapalca behind.
We’re headed now to arrange some logistics and doing the final shoping before our anticipated big andeand meal this asfternoon. We’re getting excited of leaving the urban life and travelling to put our feet at the Alpamayo trailhead tomorrow.
