Days 349 & 350 - 30 Kilos of Trash on the Highest Mountain in the Tropics

with two park guards and the leader of the donkey drivers, we stockpile trash at base camp on Huascaran the Italian Catholic church built a nice stone refuge way up high on the mountain
at the refuge adjacent to the receding glaciers of Huascaran
intense tropical sun above the south peak of Huascaran
hard to believe mountaineers could be so selfish to dump their waste on the gorgeous mountain
Collecting and carrying trash is hard work; no wonder people choose not to take it down with them
it was a good day to be a PCV despite the yellow gloves
