A Few Words: I have only been able to return to Peru 1 time since I left there in early 2010, so don't have the information (or time) to keep my Peru mountain pages up to date. If anyone is able to take them over and keep them updated, please contact me and I will turn them over to you. The Adventures Cotahuasi website and email is shut down due to a mix-up with payment. I also left Peru and returned to the U.S. for retirement in March of 2010. I was planning on offering 1 or 2 tours a year to Peru on set dates. It won't be happening for awhile, but maybe in the future. I rebuilt a truck camper which is now mounted on an Isuzu truck for back road traveling and living, boondocking style. I'm enjoying retirement and looking forward to seeing many new places. New job description, hiking, climbing, exploring! Oh, sounds a lot like my old job, but it will be in the U.S. instead of Peru.
