March 2007- Connecticut friends hiked the whole area

During this last 15 days we had 2 cool trips going on, both of them from friends from Connecticut who already visited us in March 2006 and 2002 respectivly.
First one, Ron and Sue (brother and sister) and the young spirits of Gerry and Dave (68) did an entire crossing from The Pacific Ocean to Argentina , through the Andes, trying to Climb Vn Osorno (2800 mts), navigating lakes, riding horses, living with Gauchos... a crazy adventure of once in a life time...

Second, Nan, David and Daniel, who just live 6 miles from DAve and Gerry did part of the Mt hut trek traverse, and Daniel (their son) and I climbed some pitches in the granite spires of Frey hut area...

Weather did not help at all, but experience and adventure was cool.... Patagonia is Patagonia, even if here is Northern Patagonia the weather still unpredictable...

Hola amigos…
Estamos en Canada. Bueno. Es todo mi espanol.

We’re trying to adjust to normal working life…. And 35 cm of snow we had yesterday. Luckily, the cross country skiing was pretty good today!
