Our First Trek!

Hola amiguis y familia!!!

Tomorrow morning we head out on our first trek and we could not be more excited! We spent all day today prepping for the trek in La Paz (see attached photos)– a long and very exciting way to spend a Saturday 🙂 Tomorrow we head out on our 5- day trek, in which we will be starting at 4,900 meters (over 16,000 feet!) and will be dipping as low as 2,000 meters (6,500 feet). On this trek, we will have the opportunity to touch majestic glaciers, drink from glacial lakes, and also descend into the Yungas, the tropical cloud forest of the La Paz department. Being able to observe so many different ecological steps, by foot travel, is something special. And we will be walking on the Inca Trail! Only in Bolivia!!

We will be back in civilization on Thursday evening. You can expect to hear from us then 🙂
