View Tom Dempsey's images of trekking the Cordillera Huayhuash Circuit July 6-16, 2014 in Peru, South America. Our family group of eight Dempseys tented for 10 nights at high altitude and walked for 9 days over passes up to 5000 meters or 16,500 feet elevation. Each day was a revelation of snowy peaks, lakes, local campesinos (country people), scenic campsites, native plants and flowers. Aventura Quechua company of Huaraz organized our guided tent trek with loads carried by donkeys.
