More Photos From the Heartland

All praise Base Camp after 3 hot days of travel.

Looking down the Relinchos Valley on Day 3 of the approach to Base Camp.

The tame river crossing on Day 3.

On Day 3 we ran in to a wild herd of thieving mules.

Base Camp is a mellow place (until the leg of your plastic chair crashes through one of the many giant holes in the floor).

Navigating the penitentes on the way to Camp 1.

On past trips, I've resorted to using a sextant to navigate through the pentitentes.
