Transition in Oregon before the adventure begins
01.03.2012 - 01.10.2012
After three and a half amazing years in Yosemite, last Tuesday, Delaney and I drove away from our little cabin in Foresta to head up to Oregon. The last few days have been spent unpacking our vehicles, celebrating friend's birthdays, hiking, packing, organizing, and spending time with family. Yesterday we went on a fabulous exploration of the Klikitat River and a view point above the Columbia. I'm going to remember this view when we are traveling. It will be the place I am looking forward to making a life in when we return. Another gorgeous mountain range just as spectacular as the Sierras and the Andes. The Earth is good to us.
We leave in about 48 hours for Santiago. We'll spend about 30 hours in airports before we arrive. But, we'll be greeted by the Chilean Sharps who we'll spend the week with. Then, on the 18th we are taking a flight down to Punta Arenas. From there we will launch our adventure north on land back to Santiago. Its about 2000 miles, almost the same distance between San Diego and Juneau Alaska. We hope to stop for a hike in Parque National Tores del Paine soon after we arrive in Punta Arenas.
Here we go!
