Hola friends, family and loved ones!
Our fearless team took in a local vineyard today after a delightful brunch. Then we all got together for one last great meal of a traditional Argentinian grill. Lots of meat and good drink. Though it was a great night we were sadden to say our goodbyes. Fortunately there is talk already about getting together soon for a rendezvous in a remote location on the other side of the world….the adventure continues! Thanks for joining us on Alpine Ascents’s last Aconcagua climb of the season. We had a wonderful time.
All our best,
Carole and Vern Tejas
Friends, family and loved ones,
‘Twas a big day for the Ice cream dream team as we departed base camp and hiked out of the mountains and back to civilization.
We took another photo at the same sign we started at so you can compare before and after details. It was a fine day for trekking and we were allowed a final glimpse of the summit from afar. It’s hard to believe we were just up there less than 24 hours ago.
And now for some serious showers and some well deserved rest and recuperation.
All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas
The expedition was a balanced mix of struggle, hardship, reward and joy as I expected it. Willi exhibited an encyclopedic knowledge on mountaineering, equipment, S. America and all other subjects. He kept us well fed, safe, amused and comfortable. He is an excellent guide and an excellent person.
