Argentina – Luke, Kevin, Martin and team are on the move. Casa Piedra today for their second day on the trail. This is just enjoyable walking with light packs. Great for the acclimatization, the legs and the lungs. And fun just getting back into the swing of being on an expedition. All’s good. Oh yeah, first super view of Aconcagua today, too.
Mexico – Josh and team called in from the Piedra Grande hut on Orizaba. Time to take a shot at #2. Up at midnight and leave the hut by 1 am. Hoping for some good news tomorrow. Wish them luck.
Chile – Max said it best: “Two great days to start off the trek. Yesterday we were able to see the Torres del Paine with plenty of wind but clear. With binoculars we were even able to see climbers on the central tower.
Today we went up towards the Silence Valley which was a nice walk up a beautiful river which we had all to ourselves except for a few climbing parties. As we went up the steep climb into the valley we were greeted by some typical Patagonia weather and a view of the Escudo and a partial view of the Fortaleza.
The group is having a blast and looking forward to another great day tomorrow!”
