Mountains, climbs, travel, and more

I like to travel, and to tour. I prefer remote (and not so remote) mountains to urban civilization.
Fortunately, my current location provides easy access (i.e., a "short" drive:) to some absolutely
beautiful areas. Here are some pictures (and the occasional trip report) from some of my trips.

In December 2002, I toured Peru with three friends. We used airplanes, train, buses, boats, and our feet to visit mountains, desert, lakes, rainforests, Inca ruins, cities, and more. Here are some pictures taken by my friend Sudi.
