Cajas National Park

Beautiful Cajas National Park
Beautiful Cajas National Park
We leave the hotel early this morning en route to Cajas National Park. My mom and I are big hikers and fans of the outdoors, so we can't wait to get on a trail. This also happens to be the one day that it rains in the Cuenca area. Of course! Cajas is a special place. It's known as the "land of the lakes." Located about 30 minutes outside of Cuenca, Cajas is home to 275 lakes. The scenery is reminiscent of the Scottish highlands, rough and rugged, with lichens and tiny flowers lining the trail. We decide to take a trail that rings one of the larger lakes in the park. The rain begins to fall as we are halfway around the lake. It occurs to me that we are hiking during the month of February. What did I expect? At the end of our hike, we're soaking wet, but tired and happy. I wish that we had several more days to explore Cajas and plan on coming back again in the future!
