More photos from the trip

On the climb, I took a lot more video than I did photos. I've had a chance to check out a few snippets of the video so far and I've captured some real gems. However rather than post it all piecemeal, I have grand ambitions of editing it over the next week or so into one coherent and possibly mildly entertaining video. That's my goal. We'll see if my video editing skills are up to snuff.

In the meantime, I figured I could post a few select pics from our trip. So here goes (in roughly chronological order):

My delicious Argentinian steak (pre-climb)
Luke waiting for the business where we had to pay for our permits to open. We almost missed our bus because the proprietor apparently had a big night and was sleeping it off instead of collecting our American dinero.
A sign greeting us to Aconcagua provincial park
Our first view of Aconcagua on Day 2 of the approach
Our basecamp, with a peek of the summit in the distance
Carrying a load to Camp 1
Luke on the Summit

Adrian on the Summit
Adrian lighting a rock on fire using all of our excess fuel
Saying goodbye to a dear friend
A crazy dirtbag forced to return to civilization
This boy is smiling because he got exactly what he wanted for Christmas
