These mountains stood proud in the strong sidelight. Wrapped in ever-shifting banks of fog and cloud, they towered over the surrounding hills. The first day of our arrival to the site atop Esperanza, these peaks weren't visible at all. We almost didn't need to make a second trip the following day either, yet I am thankful beyond words that we did. The night had laid a thick blanket of snow on the higher hills and highest peaks, causing the tops to stand out brilliantly!
