The Santa Cruz Trek

In Huascaron National Park in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range of Peru, we embarked on our 5 day trek. Reaching an altitude of over 15,000 ft, we hiked through sunshine, rain, and snow. Reaching the “most beautiful campsite in the world” on our second day of trekking, we were surrounded on all sides by mountains and glaciers. The pale blue glacial lakes contrasted the dark peaks of mountains, giving the valley an otherworldly feeling. Our both physically and mentally challenging trek, the hardest of the semester, took us to new heights and tested our perseverance as we immersed ourselves in the beauty of nature.
