Day 10.May 30.

so are big day begins 6:30 in the morning. Big breakfast in town at the first restaurant that opens. We have about 12 miles of road biking before we get to the trail. 10:00 a.m. in the morning we passed the last small village Huaripampa. Then the killer day on the Santa Cruz trail begins.

if you’re not bike packing, this is what you can expect life to look like in Huaripampa.

After the last town the trail climbs to an incredible 15,000 ft. Tipping out at Punto Union.

when the meadow looks so enticing but you find out it’s full of swamp sucking mud… good flutter kick Tyler.

the final climb to punto Union was unbelievable. My cell battery went dead and photo evidence is non-existent. But just 40 minutes before nightfall we ascended this 300 ft Stone staircase that was likely hundreds of years old. We drug our bikes up we cross the pass and we drug our bikes down just fast enough to get our tent set up before or the rain and the darkness went crazy.

Dry and inside
