Aconcagua 2019 – Team Dances With Mules Final Check In

Hello Cybercast Listeners!

Mike and Hannah here checking in with our final cybercast for team Dances With Mules. We are back in the small town of Penitentes after descending nearly 5,000 feet over the course of 15.5 miles. We had an incredible journey with a successful summit and so many amazing memories along the way. We enjoyed an amazing dinner after a long day on the trail. Here are some photos from our recent adventures.

1. On the ascent to the summit enjoying pleasant weather.
2. On the descent down from the summit.
3. The Team on the summit of Aconcagua, missing Dave who decided to rest at camp Colera.
4. Happy climbers on the summit.
5. A beautiful sunset after our summit day.
6. On the trail after a long day of hiking back to town.

We had an amazing journey filled with laughs, good food, and great company. We all send our love back home.

Mike, Hannah, and Team Dances With Mules.
