View of Salkantay as we travel to the beginning of the Choquequiroa trail.
Well we have finished our journey and are now back in the USA. David and Paris are in Colorado and I am in California visiting with family. We had a wonderfull month in Peru and just love the Andes. I probably walked 200 miles of trails! Brett came from Spain and spent a couple of weeks with us. This entry has pictures of hiking to Choquequiroa, extensive ruins that are really hard to get to and Ausangate, another beautiful mountain range 4 hours from Cuzco.
Natalie stayed on in Peru to travel with her sister and then she plans on traveling through Bolivia.
Thank you for following our blog and for all of the great messages you sent us.
I will be sending one more blog with pictures of Machu Picchu, Peru and the jungles Ecuador.

Ready to HikeThe trail to Choquequiroa National Park is 32 kilometers , but some of the hardest kilometers we hiked in Peru. You have to descend to the Apurimac River and then back up the other side. I think around 5,000 ft of loss and gain.
