A Busy Summer

Well, it has been a busy summer. My son is now back in school ( he just started high school.) We have added two new cookies to our products (more about those another time.) And now we are in full production for the holiday season. Labor Day started it all. Now there is Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and many more holidays. For these we will be sending out thousands of gifts and delivering many trays of cookies for parties. We ship nationwide so, if you were thinking of sending one of our gifts or using our refreshments, get you request in early before we are fully booked.

But back to my report on our hike of the Inca Trail. As I said it was a four day hike of 26 miles and was the most rigorous thing I have ever done. We were hiking at elevations of 9000 ft to 14000 ft. Every day was continuous climbing. From the time we left camp in to morning until the time we reached the next camp at night we were on the move and not at a slow pace. The first day was one of the easier days since it consisted of hiking gentle rises and drops. The second day was uphill most of the day. (And these aren’t gentle trails. These are steep stone steps.) The day culminated early in the afternoon, reaching “Dead Woman’s Pass” at 14000 feet. It was down hill from there.

The third day was downhill. That sounds easy but it was actually one of the hardest days. This was the day all the blisters appeared on our feet. The fourth day was short, and I was so exhausted by then I don’t remember much about it. Fortunately, we had a couple of days after that to tour Cusco and Lima and recover before we came home.

All in all the experience was great but it is good to relax and get back to enjoying cookies.
