Stats for the first million
Well, a few days of Villarrica Volcano before I leave. Yesterday was windy and blowing and completely whiteout. But I toured 5000 feet when my skins conveniently stopped sticking. It was a blessing as I did not really want to be out there much longer. I had ot dried them the day before so they started off wet and got worse with the weather.
Today the morning was beautiful, clear, but windy. I toured as quickly as my tired legs would take me to the top of the Volcano. 2 hours and 10 minutes for the 5500 ft. I was hoping that this being my last time on the summit that I would look into the crater and see lava. But alas just gas and smoke. I cruised back down to the bottom and did three laps back up. Looking for the best skiing, which there was very little soft snow and a lot of rain crust, a lot of crust. But I had a goal in mind and finished off with my third biggest day of the year, 13 520 ft. That helps the average a bit. I still need 7 more of those to catch up though.
