Augusto, a pack mule
Augusto is climbing with his nephew on his shoulders. His son follows close behind. I was amazed that Augusto could climb this way for most of the way to the top. He has been a friend of mine for over 4 years now. I always go to his panaderia, practically every morning, for coffee, an arepa or pan queso and the newspaper to read. This is the second time he’s gone up Tres Cruces with me. For years, I tried to talk him into going. He finally agreed and now he loves it. He is free to climb every 2 weeks when he gets a Sunday off.
