While winter still rages here in many areas of the U.S.,
I pause to remember and savor images from our trip to
Ecuador and Peru in January/February. We spent 2 ½
weeks with our daughter and her family who live in
Cuenca, Ecuador, a colonial city high in the Andes
where cool evenings and warm days exist all year long.
Then all traveled together to Peru to spend 10 days in the
Sacred Valley and Cusco, wandering Incan ruins. As I
reflect back and sort through hundred of images, themes
are beginning to emerge, but for now, I offer these images
of mountain summer to warm, inspire and intrigue...
From Cuenca - a river bank path:
daughter runs a mobile library and literacy program (stay tuned
for a blog post on "From Words to Wings" )
Then off to the Peruvian Andes -where the rocks we climbed
over in Pisac were alive with plants and flowers:
Incan ruins in Pisac
(Although by the time we reached Machu Picchu we'd already
explored some amazing locations, its grandeur did not disappoint.)
the way to Cusco:
Hope these images have helped warm you a bit in many ways.
Of course, spring will eventually arrive - even in the Northeast
U.S. Somehow it always does.
