Nice. I think the edit came out great (without knowing what the original looked like). Highest I’ve been is 14,433 and I was having a little trouble with my extremities. Not sure how I’d do north of 15k.
Beautiful scenery. Those roads are construction feats par excellence.
What road was that may I ask?
Hi Richard, the Andes mountains here are just spectacular. This particular area is in the Huascaran National Park.Beautiful scenery. Those roads are construction feats par excellence.
I'd imagine a bit tricky being gravel and on 2 wheels though.
That's 10000' higher than we have here, but interestingly the mountains are still mountains.
Yours here look awesome
Yes, I thought I recognized the area. Did some climbing there years ago . One trip we exited at Lago Llanganuco which you passed. I don't believe the road continued past the lagos at that time. The only access was on foot or via the road to Chavin de Huantar. This was just a few years after the earthquake and all that was left of Yungay was a couple of palm trees sticking above the mud. A friend of mine was instrumental in getting the park approved and was the first "Jefe". I notice the very distinct decrease in the snow/glacier cover. One place that we camped on a glacier is now a laguna! Here's a very old photo...On this day we rode from Caraz on PE-3N and turned off onto AN-106 into the magnificent Huascaran National Park at Yungay and rode as far as Yanama.
