I’m onto my last 5 days in Peru and I can’t help but feel amazingly grateful for the experiences I’ve had.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve hiked more kilometers than I can count through some of the most stunning terrain I’ve ever witnessed. The mountains here can make you feel small and the history can make you wonder. ✨🏔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This trip wouldn’t have been possible without the journey from @flighthub, and it’s an adventure I’ll never forget ✈️ #TravelWithFH ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Cordillera Huayhuash. This trek was the main reason I wanted to go to Peru. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I never thought I’d be hiking in the Peruvian Andes for 7 DAYS! That was an accomplishment, along with the daily (sometimes twice daily) summiting of mountain passes up to 5170m in elevation. 🏔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We hiked up to this insane mountain pass for sunset, probably one of the steepest parts of the whole trek. The steepness paired with the extreme elevation made it a difficult task. But I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat to see this view, probably the best view of my life so far. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big shoutout to @experienceperu for making this adventure possible 🙌🏻
Staying at this lake overnight was a dream ✨ we planned on camping until @braybraywoowoo got scared of wolverines (they were actually just cute foxes 🦊) so we stayed in the lake hostel. Thanks to @experienceperu helping us get around and do awesome stuff in Huaraz!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Would you camp or stay in the hostel? ⛺️ PC: @braybraywoowoo (my edit)
In the next couple of days I will be gearing up for most likely the hardest trek I’ve ever done. 🏔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We will be doing 6 days of the Huayhuash trek, which has some of the most unbelievable views in Peru. The hike climbs through steep mountain passes at 4800m. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It gives me peace of mind that while I’m pushing myself I can rely on my gear from @backcountry. Preparing for this trip was easy with such a range of gear and knowledgeable gear heads to help me out! #goatworthy #sponsored
My plans for this summer: enjoying my own backyard 🏡 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you have any plans this summer? 🌞
I’m extremely stoked to be taking part in the @eddiebauer #WhyIHike campaign to help encourage and inspire others to get outside and explore. 🏔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hiking is a huge part of my life, it goes hand in hand with my photography. Most photos show the beauty of my travels but not the struggle. This shot was taken at high altitude, on the third and hardest day of our trek. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The journey isn’t always easy, but it is always SO worth it. I would have never seen this amazing place without putting in the work. Places like these are #WhyIHike 🤙🏻 #ebcontributor
Be brilliant ✨ After 2.5 weeks in Cusco, 9 days of trekking, 170km of walking, up to 5200m of elevation, lots of new friends, and WAY too many cusqueñas 🍺 we are finally in Lima with one of my favourite travel friends joining us for our next crazy mountain journey in Huaraz ⛰ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’re in Lima for one more day and I’m on the hunt for the cheapest and tastiest ceviche, if you have any suggestions let me know 🐟 here’s an unrelated photo from Indonesia 😂 PC: @braybraywoowoo (m’edit)
Like a dream ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve always wanted to go to Machu Picchu ever since I first saw it years ago. Finally being there felt so surreal as we watched the sun burst over the mountains. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can’t express how grateful I am to have the opportunity to see amazing places like this. 💕
Woke up at 3:30 AM in the freezing cold to witness this beauty for sunrise 🌈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tomorrow we head out for another multi-day trek and I could not be more stoked 🔥 PC: @braybraywoowoo w/ my edit
Ausangate, you majestic beast💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We spent 4 days hiking around this amazing mountain thanks to @killaexpeditions 🏔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Usually when I do multi-day treks I live like a bum, eating mac & cheese or dehydrated meals huddled around a pocket rocket in the dark 😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But with @killaexpeditions there is no detail missed. From 3 course meals, to popcorn before dinner, and hot water bottles at your feet at night, this was the most comfortable I have ever been on a 4 day trek, and the views won’t be beat. #KillaExpeditions #partner
So rad exploring these ancient salt terraces! There are 6000 different pools, dating back before the Inca. The terraces are still mined everyday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tomorrow we start our first trek, the highest point will be 5200 m / 17,000 ft. Very excited to experience the Peruvian Andes 🌈 PC: @braybraywoowoo (my edit)
Sunsets at the 🦖 head 🙌🏻 PC: @braybraywoowoo *Peru content coming soon
