Aconcagua Expedition: Resting at Basecamp

Elevation: 13,800'

Hello from Aconcagua Basecamp,

Today we are resting and recuperating at Plaza Argentina preparing to move to Camp 1 tomorrow.  The winds look a touch rowdy up high, so staying here is a great call.  This morning we had a leisurely breakfast and excellent conversation before a short stroll to stretch the legs.  Hopefully the winds will cooperate and tomorrow we will be checking in from Camp 1!
