We went to sleep last night in Cocacabana to the sound of thunder and hard rain, and woke up this morning with lighter rain that started to diminish as we headed for the boat. By the time we were halfway through the boat ride to Sun Island the rain stopped, giving the team some blue sky for the acclimatization hike. The team made it to the top and got a nice photo. Then, we walked back down to the edge of the water and had a nice traditional lunch with trout, local potatoes, chicken and a number of other local (healthy) foods. Then it was time to get on the boat for a nice ride back to Copacabana, with occasional glimpses of the lower Cordillera Blanca range.
The team is doing great and we are excited to move towards Pequeno Alpamayo tomorrow morning.
