David Pozo  I just wanna be outside. 📍Currently exploring Peru! 🇵🇪 🇵🇪 / 🇺🇸 🏡Athens, GA 🏢Web Developer: Atlanta, GA 🐶Valor: Dutch Shepherd #ValorDoggie

The Puya Raimondii. This thing only grows at about 3000m-4500m above sea level, takes about 100 years to bloom for 3 months, generates around 6 million seeds, and then just dies. It kind of incinerates itself. So nuts! (The big round plants around me are also Puyas that haven’t bloomed yet) .

Behind me is the tallest peak in Peru, el Huascaran, as well as the old memorial of Yungay, a town that was buried in 1970 when a chunk of the mountain fell after an earthquake and covered the entire town and killed everyone, almost 70,000 people, except for a handful of children that happened to be at the circus at the local stadium nearby. The only thing that survived was the Cristo Blanco overlooking the natural disaster. You can tell where a part of the mountain is missing. .

“Oye, Nicolás no se deshace de ti no??” Nope mom he does not. Even if he is in the middle of nowhere Colombia. .
Milking cows, chasing chickens for the sancocho, tejo 💥, guaro, pola 🍺... it was a blast! Thanks for having me at your folks’ finca!

This is about all the outdoor time I got to do on the northern coast of Colombia. And it was more than alright because even better plans were made! But all the more reason to come back and accomplish my original itinerary of Cartagena-Barranquilla-Parque Tayrona-Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. I’ll be back!

Pinhoti Trail Alabama section: ✔️
I met Gary and Chip at Blue Mt. shelter several weeks ago and thanks to them I was able to finish the last portion of the Alabama Pinhoti. Unfortunately, since the Georgia section is mostly road walk all the way up to the Cohuttas in north GA, I won't be continuing my adventures on this trail. But I'll be back to do the Cohuttas at some point. Time to find something new to do! .
