We hiked up to the mountain lake, Laguna Churup. The climb took us to about 14,750 ft about sea level.
It was an interesting experience to try to breathe! The mountain range we were in is the second highest in the world, right after the Himalayans.
Right above Laguna Churup was a smaller lake. It was over 15,000 feet. I think I would have enjoyed the experience more if my heart would not have been pounding so hard!
The final picture is for those of you who thought I was lying when I said I made it that high.
