These snowy pics are of the trek on Monday to the summit of Cerro Catedral. It was a tough climb, especially when we hit snow half way up. Luckily I was wearing my hiking boots that day ( I only joined the guys hiking when I met them at the bus stop). Two of the other guys were only weraing sneakers, so they would have had freezing feet! I stopped about 500m short of the summit, where the other guys continued to a rocky outsrop to check out the view. The view was pretty amazing from where I was, though, so I didn't mind staying behind (that, and I was completely stuffed..).
