Mountain Climbing

in Family, General, Photography

We’re finally home from a month long trekking holiday in South America.

Lizzy in the lead

Lizzy is full of energy and always in the lead.

Lizzy on the summit

Lizzy was the first to make the summit of Aconcagua.

Georgia on the way back down

Even Georgia managed to make it to the top.

If this were even a little bit true, it would be glorious. Unfortunately the only climbing I’ve done the past few weeks is up the basement stairs.

The climbing trip above was just a big ‘ole pile of snow on the farm.

Not a mountain ...

I feel like I’ve been in hibernation for the past several weeks. I’m still groggy, but I’m back.

Thank you all for your emails over the past several weeks checking on me. I appreciate it.

    You take some awesome photos. What kind of camera do you use and what kind of edits do you make after if any? – Rob

    Glad to see you are back from the basement! The girls look like they are having a blast on the huge pile of snow, however, I won’t hide my increasing dislike of the winter. My attitude sucks cause its only February.

    There is a need for somebody who can handle some of your administrative tasks so that you can concentrate on more important things. Today, wise website owners, whether they are small or big businesses, have found the best solution. The answer simply rests on outsourcing a virtual assistant.

    Wow – you were really ‘getting me’ with those first two pics – and I was sitting here uberly amazed at your young-looking daughter scaling a mountain. Then when I saw the third pic, I said, ‘Hey, wait a minute!’ LOL! What a lovely pile of snow, though! Looks like the girls had a blast even if they weren’t in South America! ;)
