Cordillera Huayhuash near Llamac, Peru.

My backpacking partner, Jamie Hackney, takes in the view from the aptly-named Mirador Tres Lagunas (Three Lakes Overlook) in the heart of the Cordillera Huayhuash. We paused here for an hour during our ascent of Siula Pass to appreciate what turned out to be the best of 10 straight days of jaw-dropping beauty on the Huayhuash Trek.
