Aconcagua: RMI Team Checks in from Basecamp

Hello from Aconcagua Basecamp.
Today saw more great weather on our walk from Casa de Piedra up to Plaza Argentina which will serve as a basecamp for the rest of the expedition.  A BRISK river crossing first thing in the morning lead to a gorgeous (literally) walk up the Relinchos Valley.  For the most part everyone on the team is performing well but some cold-like symptoms seem to be starting their rounds within the group.  Hopefully tomorrow’s rest day will give us the time we need to kick these colds and continue working our way up.
