After several hours of riding, knitting, and admiring the
changing countryside, our driver pulled over to get this special shot – the highest
point of our journey. 4335 meters above
sea level. This translates into more
than 13,000 ft! It was here that Pecos
quit worrying about our altitude sickness as we “moved like gazelles” toward the
vendor at the roadside market who was selling yarn! The first we had seen as most Peruvians sell
produce or items they have made from the wool.
