Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent


That’s the Yuracrumiyoc Pass in the Urubamba region of the Andes in Peru. It was a breathless view from the top. Mainly because it’s nearly 4700m above sea level and we’d got there through a foot of snow.

The descent was just as hard going, picking our way down the other side, until I worked out there was a much easier way. I sat on a plastic bag, my walking pole across my knees and slid down it on my backside. Thus proving to yet another new group of friends that I am completely out of my mind.
