Mendoza, Argentina – Hiking in the Andes

And back to Argentina we go! This time, through the lens of my Nikon. As I stated in my first post from the country, our initial stop was the city of Mendoza. After using our first day there to get acquainted with the city, we took it up a notch on day two with a hike in the Andes, scaling a mountain called Arenales whose summit is about 12,500 feet. The climb was difficult, and the descent somewhat treacherous at times, but the incredible views made it all worth the effort.
