Bolivia Frontera

Leaving the Altiplano

After months of climbing some of the highest peaks in the Americas and being in a permanent state of asphyxia I’m exiting southern Bolivia and descending some 8,000 feet to the Atacama desert in Chile. Bolivia/Chile Frontera



I’m not typically a fan of beach resorts but this Peruvian retreat was a great place to spend Thanksgiving and the only time I would leave the Andes while in Peru.

Perito Moreno


the still expanding Perito Moreno glacier, it’s quite a sight to witness a massive chunk of ice fracture off and fall into the ocean. Perito Moreno, Argentina



I don’t tire of the colonial architecture. Centro – Leon, Nicaragua Thanks to my gracious host.
