Bolivia Team Lucas Advances to Chachacomani

Hi everyone!

The members of Team Lucas are resting in cozy hotel beds in La Paz tonight after summits of both Pico Austria and Pequeño Alpamayo in the Condoriri region. The weather has been spectacular and the views have been gorgeous. Team Lucas, true to form, took many pictures of Andean animals in the Condoriri region, but I’m sure we have a few mountain pictures to share with you as well. We all enjoyed spending several days in the quiet and beautiful Condoriri region.

Tomorrow morning we leave for our next adventure and summit goal… Chachacomani! We may need to work extra hard to plow in a route to the summit as the snow here continues to be slow to consolidate, but we are ready for the challenge.

Thanks for following along!
