A very Merry Christmas to one and all!!!

Yeahhhhh!!!! We are at the hotel Las Tejas in Cajamarca, Peru with the Two Kiwi's!!!

I can't wait to explore this town! It is beautiful!!!! We'll stay two days for sure.

We left the fierce and ferocious winds of the sand dunes and headed for the Andes.

Today's ride through The Peruvian Andes trumped everything we have ridden to date. AMAZING and UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!
You are all going to be sick,sick,sick of mountain pictures by the time I get finished!!!

Today we had extreme elevation changes, fertile valleys, perfect weather, rivers, a dam, a lake, peaks galore, divine color, texture, vegetation, charming pueblos, well paved smooth roads, all the twisties you would ever want in 175 miles, no officer Stout or any other LEO to be seen, lovely people and animals...... oh yeah!!!!!!

I'm going to catch a HOT shower, wash my hair and get ready to party!!!

I"ll set up the upload of the pictures.
xox
Colleen




Make this trip just to ride this section of the Andes!!!
