It was beautiful sunny day and our last big hike in Argentina. After long walk we finally got all the way up to refugio Frey near San Carlos de Bariloche. Even though it was sunny, wind was very cold and we were freezing. Maybe it was caused by cold waters in nearby laguna Toncek.
There were not many shelters to hide. But we found one. There was a place under one huge rock. Not much space, roughly one meter between ground and a "ceiling". So we crawled under it and realized that it was used as a toilet by many hikers before.
It was really dark, rain was pouring on our heads and we couldn't see more than few meters ahead. At that moment we heard a horse whine and the sound of hooves coming in our direction. We held each others hand and hoped that the horse will see us rather than smash into us and push us over the edge of the abyss.
