New Photos; Next Leg to Ascend 1st 50m Out of Amazon Basin
On December 5, Casey posted a new blog covering most of the stories we included in our last update. This time, along with the blog there are some new, beautiful and interesting photos.
Guide Pizarro has parted ways with Casey in Pucallpa. He purchased necessary supplies and headed down the river back to his family.
Casey is now setting his sights on his next milestone town of Atalaya and he will need to find new walking guides. He will be crossing some dangerous drug trafficking regions including one previously used by Shining Path Marxist insurgents. He will also be marking his first ascent out of the Amazon Basin. "Atalaya is a massive 50m higher than Pucallpa," exclaims Casey.
