Jim - Great, great quote at the end. We've stopped at the rest stop in MD many times. I'm sure others have told you this, but we live vicariously through you while reading your blog. Hope to see you soon. Doug

All's well in Hillsdale, MI
Jim - Very enjoyable blog, as always. Thanks for your plug for Hillsdale, MI from Hillsdale, NY. We are very much enjoying having rejoined Faith and Fellowship after a 6 yr absence. Once COVID is in our rear view mirror, we will very much miss the Sunday, 1000AM sessions. Doug

So this is it?
I thought you were going to the South Pole. From my vantage point it was worth it and it looks to me like you see it that way too. The last are some of your best pictures, but the whole trip has been fantastic. Thanks for deciding to do it and inviting us along. Harry

Can't decide?
I have decided that you can't get away from the Andes. Every time you get to Argentina, it's back to Chile. Thanks for sharing the adventure.

Wow Jim, the pics and write up are AWESOME! I'd like to be your agent when you write a book, end up on Discovery or Nat Geo Channels or all three. Great insights.

Very nice pictures. You should got back in the winter to do some before and after shots. It's obvious you are having a good time. I liked the forest view especially. It's cold here too, but without the views. Harry

All of your photographs have been spectacular during this trip, but this series is eye-popping. Your rainbow in the mist picture with the ice spires mimicking the crags behind is a big wow. Also really appreciated the photo with the cruise ship because it changes your sense of scale and helps reset your feeling for how enormous the glacier is. Thanks for sharing.

Excelentes fotos
Jimmy, tus fotos y descripciones del glaciar son excelentes. Qué suerte tuviste de juntarte con los expertos geólogos canadienses ! Llama la atención con los pocos que somos los uruguayos como uno viajando encuentra alguno como el hincha de Rampla que te preparó un chivito. Muchas gracias, Eduardo

Tt's back
The photographs are really good Jim, especially the lamb roasting. One gets a feel for the places you pass through from the pictures you take, from the flowers and papa grass to the buildings and the landscapes. Tt's nice to have people to ride with, especially Canadians.

Lost communications
Somehow after you left Antiguos your system says one can comment only on some blog that I can't figure out how to get to. So I'm following but can't comment. Good Luck

You are going to be really pleased when you blow some of these shots up, especially the house on the lake, one of my favorite kinds of shots.

You are in danger of overdosing on all that gorgeous scenery.
