Welcome Family and Friends! And to our Spanish speaking--Bien Venidos! This is the start of our travel blog, the beginning photos and words to illustrate trekking and climbing in the Cordillera Blanca Mountain Range. We--Jason, Christian and Charlie--invite you to follow the links to pictures, texts, and even post your own reply.

A brief word on the poor spelling and grammar--computer keyboards here do not funtion similarly as ones in the States.

We had flown out of JFK the morning of July 13 and arrive in Lima the same night. We spend two nights in Lima. Jason grows fond of Pilsen (see photo).

After an 8 hour bus ride to a beautiful section of the Peruvian Andes, we arrive in Huaraz. Que magnifico! We spend days on short and long treks. We battle with altitude sickness and diahrea. Que horible!

Over the next several weeks you will receive memos inviting you to future pictures and stories. Hope you enjoy. Hasta Luego!

WoW!
Amazing pictures! The scenery is absolutely beautiful! I especially liked the grass hut. It seems like such a peaceful, simple way of life. The local kids look so sweet. I can't believe you were close enough to a wild mountain lion to take his picture! Must have been a very strong lense on that camera. Keep the pictures coming..they are great! Stay safe.
