Cañon de Colca

Just returned from a 3 day adventure into the heart of the Colca Canyon: DEEPEST CANYON IN THE WORLD! (by some kind of technicality). Stayed in a hostel at the bottom in a place called oasis of Sangulle or something similar. Also saw a condor. Here are a few snaps.

The trail leading down some 1200m. I think I almost rolled my ankle 6 times.

Goodnight sweet prince. My trusty shades had been through a lot so I put them to rest in the lost property box in the hostel.
