We woke up Friday morning to clear skies and stunning views of the two gorgeous mountains behind the lodge. It is amazing to think that we are sitting at 3,503 m (11,490ft) and the top of the tallest of those two mountains is still another 3,265 m ( 10,711 ft) above us!
I think this may be the first sunny day we have had in the mountains of Peru. It was a perfect day to have sun because we went with a guide and another couple to Llanganuco Lakes. A taxi picked us all up at the lodge and took us to the lakes and then we hiked back to the lodge.
The first night at Llanganuco Mountain Lodge we were the only couple there. Our last night, Friday there were three other couples. When we walked back to our room after sharing a great dinner with the other guests the snow covered peaks were absolutely glowing in the moon light.
