Driven To Wander - Vancouver to Patagonia

Most visitors take a 4 hours train ride from Cusco to Machu Picchu. We wanted to something different. We drove dirt back roads and hiked on the train tracks to reach one of the most amazing ruins we have seen.













 
Tougher than Tough Mudder!!! With Indigo on my back that is. We hiked 10 km from 14700 ft (4500m) to 16400 ft (5000m) to reach Rainbow Mountain (Montaña de Siete Colores) in Peruvian Andes. Lack of oxygen at this altitude makes every uphill step fairly strenuous. Ausangate Glacier on the right, Rainbow Mountain on the left, herds of alpaca scattered on the hills, views are breathtaking. .

Such an amazing trip! This is what I envision for my family and I'll be sharing this with my wife to see. Our son is 2 years old and is getting better at camping and longer trips. Thanks for sharing!
 
We camped two nights at this spot, right by the swamps of Pantanal. There are so many caimans, capybaras, probably anacondas just few feet from us that when we direct our flash light at night from our bedroom windows, we saw many eyes looking back at us in total darkness....

Here it is, the biggest and the most elusive predator of the new world! We spotted this male jaguar after an hour boat ride into the deep, wet jungle of Pantanal. He stared right at us and decided to jump back into the river and swim towards our 3-person flimsy boat, giving us goosebumps...
