Aconcagua Expedition: Day 1 on the Trail

The team awoke in Penitentes this morning to blue skies and plenty of sunshine to greet us for our first day on the trail. We spent the better part of the morning tying up loose ends and finishing our preparations for the herrieros.  A comfortable breeze was blowing all day which tempered the heat and made the walk in to Pampa de Lenas most enjoyable. An early arrival in camp meant a nice little siesta in the sun before the mules arrived with our supplies. After dining on spaghetti with meat sauce the crew has mostly retired to their tents except for a few avid stargazers who are psyched to see the southern sky for the first time. The group is made up of a bunch of great people and we are all feeling the excitement of finally getting this adventure underway!

That’s about all for now,

RMI Guide Billy Nugent
