Howdy, ya’all from Alpamayo Basecamp.

Up here at 14,270’ the air is a bit harder to breathe, but we are doing well and feeling strong. The hike today was a unique mix of open glacial plains and mossy paths through the woods which remind us of the land of the hobbits.
Currently the team is reading or napping in the tents to avoid the intense mid-day sun. We are all performing well and, weather permitting, plan to carry some gear up to a higher camp tomorrow.

You’ve spent too much time on the Rio Grande and in Texas, obviously.  Now you’re trying to talk like a Texan: “ya’ll”?!
Have fun.

Glad to get Mike’s call.  Sounds like it’s God’s country. Go for it Hobbits! Via con Dios! - Pam
