Back in Mendoza!

I will post all the details soon (a journal full of writings to transcribe - and reduce!) but just to say that Aconcagua was a wonderful adventure. I didn't make it to the summit unfortunately... 20,000ft was my limit... got pretty sick for 2 days but recovered to enjoy the last few days hiking out. Back here in Mendoza since Monday night and flying home today. Not looking forward to the Mpls weather after basking in warm sunshine almost every day of the trip - we really got lucky with the weather even on the higher parts of the mountain.

20000 is plenty - and gives you a reason to return, right? Yeah, the weather here's like the top of a mountain - windy and cold. Looking forward to the details.

Can't wait to hear all about your adventure Helen :)

I'm sorry you had to cut out at 20,000 - that is still a huge accomplishment! Looking forward to your pics and journal entries. xoxo

Helen, the highest point in Ireland is 3414 feet; you have been to where most can only dream about. Enjoy the accomplishment of your adventure.
