Cotahuasi Photos
I thought that I would share a few photos from my recent trip down the Cotahuasi river in Peru. The Cotahuasi - while not being incredibly difficult from the whitewater standpoint - is one of the most humbling and awe inspiring places I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Flowing over 3400 meters below the rim the small river carves one of the worlds deepest canyons (the peruvians claim the deepest) as it winds it's way through the Atacama desert; the driest desert in the world. To complete the picture the place is chalk-full of pre-incan ruins, Peruvian Condors, subsistance farmers, fisherman, miners, and hot springs. On this trip the water was low and we took extra time to explore ruins and side canyons and get the most out of this beautiful place. Enjoy the pictures.

even know it was Will´s birthday!



Yes... even the shuttle was THAT fun!

If you answered yes to either of these things, hopefully this blog can help avoid some of those awkward conversations!
