Elevation: 10,550'

Good morning!
This is Billy checking in from Argentina.  All is well and we are en route to Aconcagua Basecamp.
We hit the trail on Tuesday morning with fairly light loads on our back.  All of our group gear, tents, fuel and food was sent along to basecamp by mules from our outfitter Grajales Expeditions.  We spent our first night on the trail at Pampa de las Lenas at around 9,000’. 
Yesterday we broke camp and began the walk to Casa de Piedra at 10,550’ where we spent last night. Everyone is doing well and we will be leaving shortly for our final trek into basecamp.
We will check in again soon.
