Aconcagua: Rest Day at Basecamp

Elevation: 13,800'

We’re enjoying ourselves today on another beautiful bluebird day here at Plaza Argentina after being awoken by incoming helicopters.  We chowed down this morning on bacon and eggs with green peppers and onions, coffee, and maté and then spent the afternoon prepping for tomorrow’s carry to Camp 1.  The carry should take us over 16,000’ and give us some good exercise to stimulate better acclimatization.  The weather looks like it’ll be turning south on Sunday/Monday so it will be nice to get a cache in before the snow comes.

We will check in again soon.
