Leaving the Altiplano

After months of climbing some of the highest peaks in the Americas and being in a permanent state of asphyxia I’m exiting southern Bolivia and descending some 8,000 feet to the Atacama desert in Chile. Bolivia/Chile Frontera

Royal Enfield

The iconic symbol of moto travel in India. Daba stop after summiting Tanglang La at 17,500 feet, Ladakh region, Jammu and Kashmir, India

Srinagar marketplace

Taking in the diverse culture of the Kashmiri marketplace. Srinagar, Kashmir, India

O2

Not much oxygen at 14,000 feet. Pang, Ladakh, India

Taj Mahal

I traveled to India to ride the highest road in the world and didn’t give much consideration to the Taj Mahal. I’ve since seen the err of my ways. Taj Mahal, Agra, India

Quelap

It sits on a mountain at 10,000 feet and dates back to the 6th century which makes it almost a 1000 years older than Machu Piccu, yet its history is largely unknown. Riding here was a half the fun.

San Vicente

This little guy seeks a reprieve from the sun in the small mining town where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were allegedly gunned down. I have enormous respect for the people who live atop this 15,000 ft peak. San Vicente, Bolivia

Haunchaco

I’m not typically a fan of beach resorts but this Peruvian retreat was a great place to spend Thanksgiving and the only time I would leave the Andes while in Peru.
