🥇 Argentina – A dream almost came true... by @digi-me

Aconcagua (6.962 m.) is the highest mountain on the American continent. The highest mountain outside Asia and one of the Seven Summits (the highest mountain on each continent). Together with my two sons, I did my first trek to a Seven Summits in 2001- Kilimanjaro ( 5.895) in Tanzania. Since then, I had a dream of reaching one or two more. Aconcagua was one of them. My youngest son still has a dream of reaching the top of Aconcagua. But when we were in Argentina last year, we agreed we had to see the mountain. So when staying in Mendoza, we drove to the starting point of the trail to the summit.

🥈 [Eng-Esp] The Dunes of Coro, the desert of Venezuela / Los Médanos de Coro, el desierto de Venezuela by @sofathana

From the first time I went to the Dunes of Coro I have no photos, I was about 12 years old and didn't have a camera, but the images remained in my memory. It was the school vacation months and I had gone to Valencia (Carabobo state) to spend a few days with my cousins who lived there. My uncle always invented unexpected trips and since my grandmother (his mother) was also visiting, he took us to the Falcón state without telling us anything. When we were riding in the car and already leaving the borders of the Carabobo state, maybe he told us where we were going before we got there hahaha, he loved doing that and the truth is that my cousins and I liked those surprises.

🥉 Climbing Mt Ngungun, Glass House Mountains Australia. by @vcclothing

So while we had our little weekend getaway up to Montville. Another great walk we did was up to the top of Mt Ngungun. Which is part of the Glass House mountains at the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. The Glass House Mountains consist of 13 mountains and they all are very unique looking. Here is an astrophoto I took of Mt Coonowrin which is also part of the Glass House Mountains a couple of nights before.
