Hey, this is Matthew Emht reporting for Team Loco Lucio. Today is January 22nd Tuesday and the team’s had a great day today.
We had a pretty snowy day yesterday; it was a warm day and it ended up being pretty icy at night, the clouds cleared and it was a bit chilly for 15,500 feet.
We woke up today with clear skies and almost a foot of snow on the ground, a little more and less in places. And we packed up, left camp, and carried up to Amagino Col (at about 17,500 feet). It was once again a sunny, wonderful day. We were happy to dry things out and to make a little bit more forward progress. We spent about an hour up at our Camp 2 site, clearing snow away; there were some pretty good sized drifts. And we took a little nap, had a little snack up there. Some clouds came in this afternoon, and we had a couple more flurries.
So we headed back down to camp and we’re enjoying some empanadas now, cooked up by Danny in the fry pan. This is the first time we’ve tried it up here and it seems to be a big hit.
So that’s the news. We’re looking forward to a rest day tomorrow and we’ll be moving up to Camp 2 after that. Thanks for listening.
