Aconcagua, Ojos & San Fransisco Maps

I did up some maps so that it is easier for everyone to follow where I had been. Instead of just reading text on where I had travelled to and how long each journey took, view the maps. The numbers labelled beside each line of travel (marked in red for vehicular journey and yellow for journey on foot) corresponds to the text below.

Please feel free to view the enlarged map of Aconcagua/ Ojos/ San Fransisco as well as the 3D google earth image of the route we took on Acon.
