Day 158 – Caraz, PE

Day 158 – Caraz, PE      01/26/11      Mileage: 55 local miles

The plan for today was to dash up to Laguna Paron high in the Cordillera Blanca, snap some pictures and then head south for Huaraz.

That way, gringo…

The high peaks were mostly shrouded in clouds, which was too bad but it was still a nice setting.

I was hoping the run to Laguna Paron would take only 2 hours…but it ended up taking 4, so I didn’t have enough time to get down to Huaraz the long way through the Cordillera. My plan for the day nixed, I decided to stay in Caraz another night, then make the run to Huaraz first thing tomorrow. That also gave me time to get caught up on the blog that is several days behind. For dinner I went back to Cafe Terraza which is nice little joint just off the main square.

Tomorrow the road I’m taking crosses the mountains, so I hope the weather is clear so I can get a good look at the snow capped peaks that eluded me today.

    Beautiful post today. The “roads” look so narrow but the scenery is gorgeous. The one with the mountains and a small blue pool at the bottom is so beautiful.

    Hope you get to do the stuff you wanted today. This morning I opened the address from your blog on the adobe city and I read it for a while and then something happened and it shut off and now I cannot read the comments now………says there is an error. I can post and see the one before me but cannot read the ones from belore. Anyway, I don’t know what happened and either does Dad. Did anyone else have a problem?? I probably was the only one who opened it.

    Say well and safe. Love ya, Mom
