Laguna 69

After arriving into the cozy mountain city of Huaraz aka hikers paradise located somewhere in the Peruvian Andes, I made some friends and organised some transport out to the interestingly named Laguna 69 (none of the other lakes are numbered). The hike took us a bit longer than expected after suffering a bit of the old altitude breathlessness on the climb up from 3900m to the Laguna at 4600m. I think the gang may have clocked in at a bit over 3 hours and lost one friendly German lass on the way. Views were pretty suave.
