The hell you doing?” The man with the lit cigarette looked up like he was about to get mugged. Miguel, our hiking guide, stood uphill from him, his large, dark frame a menacing sight form below. The man nervously extinguished his cigarette on the closest rock. “Don’t throw that on the ground either,” Miguel added. T...
