We woke up at 7am to start our trek. We packed up our tent and walked all day in a downpour of rain. It was so cold. At Campamiento Italiano, which was closed, we made ourselves hot water to warm up before going to Valley Frances. We only went 30 minutes into Valley Frances. The weather was horrible. Finally, we arrived at Campamiento Cuernos...WE WERE SOAKED! First, I burned my tongue on hot tea, and then I burned my hand really bad on the stove. There was a huge stove in the Refugio where everyone was drying there boots, and when I went to retrieve mine, I tripped and had to grab the chimney of the stove. It hurt sooooo bad!
