We are back in the mountains again! And it feels great! Our team had a leisurely walk with light packs in the Vacas Valley. The clouds kept us cool and the sun off our backs.

After a nice picnic lunch along the Vacas River we arrived at our first trekking camp. The team is relaxing and we are about to prepare some snacks before we sit down with the cowboys as they prepare an asado meal of steak, corn on the cob and grilled vegetables. There’s no need to start eating ramen just yet.

Everyone says hello to friends and family and the guides say hello to our RMI family back in Ashford, WA.
