Aconcagua Summit Ridge

This old photo was shot at about 22,700 feet, miles and miles above tree line. Yes, the weather was getting ugly.

Can't put a finger on it, but there's something really cool about that first pic you posted Tom. Great mood.

Both Bob G. and Tom have some breathtaking images here, really good stuff. I particularly enjoy the Tom K's photograph looking out of his tent on that glacier pouring down the face of that massive valley.

"Great mood."

I can still remember what my mood was, Craig: Awestruck and very, very humbled at being well and truly in the abode of the mountain gods. It is a very spiritual place. I spent most of two weeks floating along that ridge in the second picture feeling very airy/empty and at peace. I feel it is no accident that the Sherpa are Buddhist. The Khumbu is very conducive to that state of being.

Second photo is fantastic! Wish I could wake up to a view like that everyday.

Where's the trip report accompanying these photos, Chris?
