Viewing Post for: Inca Trail I 2013

Date: July 15, 2013, Monday
Location: Uramba, Maras, Maras salt mines, Uramba and Sacred Valleys, up to 12,500 feet

A 10th generation weaver gave us a fascinating demo of taking the wool, how to spin, color, and it. This was then followed by a very successful buying spree. We explored 2000 plus year old sites of harvesting salt from a local spring, a 1000 year old seed experimental research site and other ancient mysteries. How to explain how the rainbows, rain, sun, snow glaciers, precipitous road drop offs and local people all combine at anyone single moment. Wow seemed to be our favorite word today. Now our briefing is over and we are frantically packing to limit ourselves to only 15lbs of gear per person to begin our much anticipated Inca Trail hike in the morning
