Condors and canyons

In a few minutes we head to the gigantic Colca Canyon, about 100 miles northwest of Arequipa, Peru.

Colca is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon and, according to the Guinness Book of Records, the deepest canyon in the world. The  views are supposed to be magnificent. It’s Peru’s their most popular travel destination, and I’d never heard of it. It’s also likely to be the best place in South America to catch close-up views of the mighty condors.

My camera batteries are charged, and I’ll be back soon to report. And I promise not to get too close to the edge. 🙂

      Sure hope the condors do the courtesy of showing up. Fingers crossed.
