We hiked out from Base Camp to Penitentes two days ago and drove back from Pentitentes to Mendoza yesterday. Last night we had our celebratory team dinner in Mendoza (typical Argentina meat and wine, of course!). It was so delicious and we were all still on an endorphin high from the expedition. I am sad to be leaving all my teammates who now feel like family to me. They are great guys and girls. I’ll miss them a lot. Hopefully we will get together again the future and climb another mountain! I’m heading off to the airport now to catch my flight home. I can’t wait to see my family!
