{Peru} Choquequirao to El Maizal

Parque Nacional Los Alerces

Hiking in Los Alerces National Park, Argentina It sounded like home last night with the wind whipping itself into a frenzy outside our cabaña. Today should have been the rest day as I was feeling pretty sick and could have used that 3-hour nap Anders took yesterday. Anders entertained himself (and me) by mimicking me …
