Default Argentine Pass 9/15

My dad wanted to take his wife's brother Neil up in the hills so we headed up last Sunday in the rain. Beautiful day and the trail is in good shape. We picked up what little trash we saw and the road looks great. There was no damage from the rains.

Subzali, if you want to add our hours - left at 10, got back at 5 x 2 = 14hrs.

The only issue we saw is the sign is missing from the upper post.

You guys are the best! Glad you enjoyed your time up there! I'm not going to worry about the sign for this year, but we'll make sure to put a new one up in the spring!

Where is that first pic taken? Is that on the lower road somewhere?

Looks like a great time. I'd like to get up there before it snows, but doubt I will in 2013.

You can see the main road below in the first pic. If you take the power line up where it crosses the main road, this is the original road. It is the right at the first intersection after you cross the main road.
