When Melanie Martin took this picture and sent it to me, she wrote that she and her husband John were on their way to the Colca Valley to see Andean condors. The valley also contains the Colca Canyon, which is deeper than the Grand Canyon in the United States.
This is not the Colca Canyon. The lady in the picture is pulling her single-speed cargo tricycle along a Peruvian road at 14,000 feet.
If an Andean condor landed on the handlebars Phillip-Petit style, one foot in front of the other, its 10-foot wingspan would overhang the wheelbase.
Which, while diverting, would be of no help to the tricycle’s operator.
Thanks for the picture, Melanie.
