Chile_04

This was a long hard day—about 22 km or 14 miles, but the skies cleared and we were able to make it over Paso John Garner. Because of the rains the previous 2 days we spent the first several hours of the day trudging through a swamp. But there is nothing so life-affirming as cresting a pass that you have worked really, really, really hard to get to. Especially when it is this beautiful. We had built a lot of solidarity with people who were on the same route as us—including this group of Germans behind us —and we cheered each other on as we reached the top.
