Aconcagua

Aconcagua: Team Arrives at Base Camp

Greetings from Plaza Argentina, our basecamp and new home for the next few days.  Today we awoke at dawn, had a quick breakfast and crossed the ice cold Vacas River before heading up the Relinchos River Valley to Basecamp.  Some of us waded the chilly waters and the more sensible among us opted for a short mule ride.  Good walking weather again made our beautiful approach quite pleasant; not too hot or too cold, but just right.  Here at Basecamp we are enjoying a nice siesta before dinner and tomorrow we plan to rest and adjust to this new altitude of just under 14000 feet.

Kim, our IB layers kept us warm in -11 F temps in CO.  Hope it’s warmer than that there.  We can’t wait to see you in Portland, maybe some more oysters at the Woodsman.
