Early in the planning of this adventure I spent many sleepless nights visualizing myself inside the dark tunnels of the Cañon del Pato and catching my breath at the top of one of the 16,000 foot passes in the Parque National Huascaran. I feel so lucky that we got the oppotunity to turn these dreams into reality. The trip from Trujillo to Huancayo will undoubtedly go down as one of my favorites.
We have spent the last couple of weeks riding the in the company of Roland and Belinda. An amazing couple on a tandem who have amazed us with their fortitude and positivity. They have made these recent experiences even more enjoyable. As a bonus, Roland continually ammuses us with his ability to make small children cry at the sight of his overly impressive beard.
