Photographer's Note

even before our hike I knew I wanted a photo of the majestic Peruvian Andes with our tiny group hidden in the corner, but still there to show you the scale (yes, those ant-like creatures on the right are people).

we had just started our 4 day hike in the Lares Valley, and I was still able to gather enough strength to stop and get the camera out of the bag. we were a really small group - just 4 hikers and a guide (our 3 person "support group" consisting of a cook and 2 men taking care of the hourses usually did not walk with us, we met them for lunch and then at the end of the day) - and as a result we had the Andes for ourselves, which would never be possible on the crowded "classical" Inca Trail.
