Manizales, Colombia, South America
Man I'm hurting HAHAHA hips are so sore man struggling to walk. I guess they have got weak on the bike. So hiked 35 on the first day 1800mtr. 16kg pack. Camped in a sweet as spot was super excited. Realised the first volcano may be further than originally thought. Got fed some raw milk at a dairy with a huge chunk of sugar cane sugar. Was awesome. Camped around 2,800mtr was chilly but peaceful.
Hiked to the decision point on day 2 and realised it was an extra 30km up and back to the volcano didn't have enough food to sustain me the extra day so thought that's ok I will head for the higher one. Hiked most of the day some shuffling but mostly power walking 5k an hour. Took a number of wrong turns but whatever. Super peaceful and quiet not too many people out. As I was climbing a nice hill I was stopped by the parks authority about 20-25k from the volcano. I was then told that I could go no further as the volcano is active and nobody is allowed up there. They told me to hike down about 4km to where the ranger hit is and I could camp there and continue my walk back out tomorrow.
