Cerro Provincia Snow Trek May 2017

The day after the first real snow of the year

After the first serious fall of snow of 2017 in the Andes close to Santiago, this is a well known special moment, because the pollution of the city is temporarily controlled and the views and colours are incredible, as you can see in this picture.

A very happy day indeed...

 I fell in love with this mountain dog (a street dog that follows hikers in the mountains).. We were playing in the snow and I decided to snap some photos and caught this beauty shot... I wanted to take him home but decided the dog was happier with the freedom of the mountains than a city flat!

 Picking our way through the fresh snow on the descent. Our mountain dog had no problems with his 4 legs!
