Luke called in this afternoon with a happy team from Huayna Potosi Base Camp.
The team packed up from Pequeno Alpamayo Base Camp and headed towards the bus to Huayna Potosi. Herding the llamas and walking down to the bus with a summit under their belts is a great feeling. Almost as good as meeting the resupply vehicle loaded with more fresh food and PIZZA for lunch!
Fog is in and out at Huayna today. The team got a few good glimpses of their next objective. An early dinner and a great night sleep in the refugio tonight.
I asked Luke how the spirits of the team are and he said that they are enjoying a few cups of tea and “a James Bond movie.”
Tomorrow, they will hit the trail around 10 am, then walk up hill to the next refugio. There might be a condor sighting if they are lucky.
They are in for another great view in a couple days.
