seven summits – aconcagua 2

seven summits

This is another pigeon from Aconcagua, the second highest of the seven summits.  Note the signatures of the team summiting. Also note the hand done blue and red stripes denoting airmail.  I could have used a commercial airmail envelope but it would not have been acid free and I have been very careful with all my pigeons to be sure everything is acid free.  The dotted line shows their airplane flights in and out of their staging point at Mendoza, Argentina.

Instead this was hand carried to the summit and back by my friend Dick Tucker.
