a fabulous trip!
We had a wonderful time. Everything about the trip (weather, visibility, leadership, group dynamics, relative abilities of the group) could not possibly have gone any better. A fabulous trip.
This trip was very challenging and would not have been possible for me without the great guides. The rest day included in the itinerary was perfectly placed. The optional hikes, because of their length and points of interest were perfect choices.
