Trekking in the Andes!

And so it begins!
And so it begins!

 A couple years ago, I was reading the latest issue of Men's Journal magazine, which focuses on exploring the great outdoors. They always feature articles about adventure travel, and one of them caught my eye. Sue and I had been talking about taking an adventure trip to jointly celebrate our 60th birthdays in the summer of 2017. I handed her the magazine and said, "How about this one?"    The piece was a short one, about trekking the Salkantay Trail through the Andes of Peru. She read it and said, "Sounds good."     It turned out to be more than good, much more. It was, in many respects for me at least, the challenge of a lifetime. 

 We never really considered other options for the trip. There was something about the Salkantay that seemed to capture us, just from the photos and videos on the website of Mountain Lodges of Peru.  We never really considered any other outfitter, either, as Mountain Lodges had an excellent reputation, which we would discover was well-earned. Other outfitters would include actual camping along the trail, but our experience in Tibet the previous year, when we stayed four nights at a camp in wood-floor tents with electricity and coal-burning stoves, had convinced us that while we were certainly willing to undergo the rigors of the trek, we wanted to spend our nights in relative comfort.
