Fotos IX

Here are some of the better pictures of Peru so far.  There should be plenty more to come.  Check out the latest report below.  Also, you can click on these photos to enlarge them.  I just realized that.

My bike vs. Charlie's in the lonely Peruvian desert between the Ecuador border and Lima.

These dunes came and went the whole way down.
Charlie taking in our very first view of the Cordillera Blanca.

Here's the lake and glacier that we hiked to from The Way Inn.

And another shot from the ride that day.
36 tunnels in 17 kilometers.  You can see two here.  The scale of the valley is impossible to convey.

Here's Charlie in front of a couple tunnels.
Looking west down on the two lakes above Yungay from 15,300 feet.  Struggling to breathe.

This is the road we climbed up on.

One last shot of the Cordillera Blanca after we came down from Huari.  'These are the days you should be having'


  1. Pictures of roads like that make you wonder who built them...and how...and why. I guess we should just be glad they did. BTW, the spare tires are a good look, ours decided to go it's own way somewhere in northern Argentina, maybe it wanted to be a tire swing.

  2. Just as I thought - saw those roads on IRT Deadliest Roads this past month and knew I wanted to ride them too. Nice work through those canyons and great photos!
