After leaving Base Camp yesterday we made the long trek back to Pampa de Llenas where the length of this journey began to sink in.  Many miles of beautiful walking brought us back to our first camp where we were treated to an asado courtesy of our herreros. Grilling over an open fire under the Andean sky we really put the trip to bed in style. Getting to visit with the incoming RMI crew was fun, seeing all those clean faces and knowing that we were just a few hours from a shower ourselves. 

Thanks to a wonderful crew for a great trip and can’t wait to see everyone in the mountains soon!

The skill of a great pilot is proven only when the plane lands its passengers safely back on the runway. Same with mountain guides.

Nice job Steve and team. It is what guiding is all about!

We want to see what the dirty faces look like before you shower and shave!  Bill, what does that beard of yours look like?!!  :)

Again, BIG kudos for making it up and down safely!!  You all rock!
