Nice little trip

Your title photo caught my eye since it looked just like a certain view of Aconcagua from northern side - very barren as well as pyramidal. As a fellow Aco summiteer would you agree? Slight difference in scale of course...
That is not to say Pyramide is small - I am very impressed at Dutchess climbing such a high mountain - 4200m unless I am mistaken.
I was pretty pleased to have got my nearly 10 year old golden retriever up a 1000m mountain a few weeks back! Like Dutchess he had to have a nap on the top.
best wishes, Mark

Re: Nice little trip

Thank you Mark, Duchess has a lot of summits. I think she would make it up Aconcagua. Altitude does not seem to bother her, now it is her age...

All dogs live forever, in one form or another.

Cheer's to finding ourselves, Liba!

hiking with your dog

I enjoyed your trip report. I hiked (day hikes) alone with my dog for many years and always worried what I would do if she sustained an injury. Carry her down, go for help, certainly not leave the dog. How do you handle this issue and what would you do? Thanks. Charles Baxter slowbutsteady

Re: hiking with your dog

Hi Charles, I carry a big backpack, and would probably put her in... Although, we are slowing down and I don't think we will do many more long trips. Thank you for visiting.

Altitude sickness kept me from hiking up there last September. I was just way too ill to go up there after setting up camp. All I could do was rest and be nauseous. One in our party did make the attempt, but a thunderstorm chased him down.
