This morning, reading the news from Chile as it trickles in… Aconcagua is only a few miles from the Chilean border, and not too far from the lovely city of Santiago, and I’ve spent a lot of mental time in that region over the last 4 years (nearly went for real around about this time, too, but I went to Banff instead). The tsunami warnings are frightening — apparently Hawaiian residents were to be woken up by siren at 6 a.m. local time to warn them a tsunami is on its way in 5 hours’ time? Wow. Waiting to hear about concrete ways to help.
