Last week was gorgeous weather (almost every day), so last Thursday while the sun was still shining, we woke up, looked at each other and said, "It's a Cajas Day!"
We've been holding out on visiting due to the weather and altitude adjustment. We went with a friend who drove us there and I couldn't believe what I saw. It reminded me of Switzerland, Austria, and the California Nevadas (sort of an odd combination -- I know!).
We made it to 11,000 feet and lunched at Dos Chorreras and booked the honeymoon suite at the hosteria for our 35th wedding anniversary next month. They gave us a tour of the facilities and we were mesmerized. My camera card was full and every other picture I had to delete. Sigh...
Next time, we want to make it up to the lakes, but this was just a trial run to see if the altitude affected us, and I'm happy to report that it did not. We drank coca tea, so I'm sure that had a lot to do with it.
So remember, when the sun is shining head to the mountains and make it a Cajas Day!
