But it’s beautiful out here we weren’t hiking through it maybe set up a little Netflix, and hot cocoa this would be a beautiful day out in the middle of it not as much snow all right we only got about two hours left if this breaks at all. So buddy go ahead the rain doesn’t break it actually turns to snow, and a lot of it I am completely unprepared hiking in August I only brought one fleece glove liners, and a ten dollar convenience-store raincoat we hiked for over an hour in the storm before spotting a small farmhouse in the distance, and we duck into the basement for shelter it seems we aren’t the only ones escaping the cold a good-sized crowd of hikers have already gathered inside, and more join as we wait. But there’s no way we can stay here overnight. So after a quick thaw we wish everyone good luck, and press on after two more grueling hours of fighting off frozen fingers, and literally battling the elements our refugio appears in the distance like a frozen desert oasis I have never been. So happy to get inside, and dry off we made it to the refugio that was a tough day I was actually getting worried there for a little bit my hands were getting very very cold I wasn’t prepared, and all of my dry clothes in my bag got completely soaked. So, I’m just hanging out a towel until those are ready now we’re gonna go have some lunch, and that’s it for the day you’re supposed to do an afternoon hike. But obviously the weather like this not very safe.

So that’s it we’re just gonna hang out for the rest of the day here in the lodge, and it is beautiful, I’ll show you around a little bit. But, I’m happy to be inside that was a tough HOF morning the place is as warm, and cozy as a winter ski lodge with an interesting decor, and delicious food it is the most welcoming of finishes to the almost unbearable beginning the next morning we awake to a completely new world here we go day five it’s a beautiful day here in the mountains this is why we came not yesterday today makes it all worth it we came to use today yes there was a look yes there was a learning that was the adventure absolutely right hey ray you ready to go today looking good guys today’s track has us leaving the finest refugio, and snow-covered trails at just over 2,000 metres high then we hike down into the sunny Green Valley past the beautiful farmhouses there’s a couple of grown men posting rabbits, and then up the other side prettier than our lunch today okay this background walk this way all sorts of switchbacks on the way up that’s our backdrop though not too bad, and up here sweaty hot stark contrast from yesterday snow is melting legs are burning, I’m ready for some lunch yes these little cabins beautiful tucked away into the woods it’s a long almost 2,000 meter climb back up into the snowy landscape to reach our next refugio.
