| Aconcagua - Episode 1 |
For 15 days, every day was hard. Weather was brutal. I had no porter and chose to carry up to 30kg during my porter days. Some days the wind will throw me to the ground or force me to seek cover amongst rocks. The days of little sleep and hard trekking on the Guanacos side of the mountain really begin to show - wind burnt hands, scabby nose, cracking lips, pain in finger and aches. But everyday I had views like this. These moments will make your eyes water and validate your efforts. Everyday I met people who love exploration and sincerely cared for nature with the challenges that came with it. These connections stick with you forever.
I spent the dec 25th hiking 26 miles to be able to exit the mountain and meet the crew to continue shooting. We are heading to another 6,000m peak climb. My body has yet to fully recover but mentally I am stoked to bring another episode to life.
When I came off of Aconcagua, I saw our indiegogo surpassed $1000 in donations. Thank you for believing in me and supporting these efforts in bringing science and education to the all! Please, spread out our #indiegogo link in our bio for our show.
Happy new year. Can't wait to show you the episodes! ♥️ #accesscollective #accesschile #roam #aconcagua #alpinismo #alpinism #mountainculture #mountaineering #montanismo #doyoutravel #scienceadventure #science #natureneedshalf #womeninscience #womenwhoexplore #7summits
