Along with Arequipa I had also not visited the Colca Canyon on my last trip. I'd heard great things about it and it didn't disappoint. A superb place to visit and, dare I say it, I didn't see too many gringos as on the bike, I was able to dodge the tour buses. Bonus!
Leaving Arequipa. The Misti volcanos overlooking the city.
The same recipe for the past 600 or so years... ;-)
Yanque is a pleasant little town and a good base to explore from. A lot less touristy than Chivay
This is wrong in so many ways
The Ampato volcano bubbling along nicely
A more pleasant depiction of rural Peruvian life
The walk home from work
Smithing pots and pans in the street
The Colca Canyon is famous for the Andean condor. They kept their distance and with only an 18 to 105mm lens they weren't so easy to capture on film
How high? How far? The turn off down to the canyon bottom. 800m horizontal distance to my right, 2000m drop in altitude and 29km to ride!
Some hardcore civil engineering
A leisurely ride down begins
Taking a rest, mindful of rockfalls
Reached the river. Now the only way is up again!
