Photographer's Note

Alice in chains, baby..

Now, where was I? Colca Canyon, actually, sometime after the last shot I posted.

A day of walking in the desert dust later, a day of walking down to the bottom of one of, if not the, deepest canyons in the world.

A lot of dust, cacti, agave plants, and donkeys. You see, that's the only way to get to where we stayed - walking, or donkey.

Or mule, too, I guess. You can see the path winding down the cliff/hill/mountain on the left. That was about a mile down I think. Around the green bit at the bottom is the oasis at which I had a truly excellent swim and a few well deserved cervezas.

And then we walked up the zigzag path there.

Anyway, a truly excellent trek - make sure you don't miss it if you ever get there.

Chao.
