Jason Edwards called in last night via satellite phone. The team all arrived safely in Lima with ALL baggage and made the trip to Huaraz. They spent their first day in the field yesterday, visiting Lago Churup a high mountain lake then camping just below. Today the trek starts in earnest, trekking towards the Huaripampa Valley.
UPDATE: July 16, 2015, 3pm Pacific Time:
Jason just called in with today’s update. The team had a long day today, 2,800 vertical feet of climbing over 7 ½ hours. But all are excited to be on the trail and looking to an easier day tomorrow. Tomorrow they head over Tupa Tupa Pass to Jancapampa at 11,500’.
Good luck to the team!
