Aconcagua: Stevens & Team Nestled into Plaza Argentina

Happy New Year from the team, nestled in here at Plaza Argentina! How many of you can say you started off the new year riding on the back of a mule across a raging river? Well, everyone on the team did just that, and once we were all safely across the Vacas River we started today’s long ascent up the Relinchos Valley.

The early morning shade gave way to sun, and unlike yesterday we didn’t have a breeze to cool us down. While the absence of flying sand was nice, the heat wasn’t exactly what many expected as we made our way higher and higher. Hydration was critical as we climbed closer to our goal, and by mid-afternoon we arrived in base camp - hot, tired, and happy to be here.

Our hostesses Griselda and Anita soon had delicious treats on the table and juice in our glasses, and the team took full advantage. After some much-needed rest, we sat down to a dinner of trout, potatoes and tomatoes, complemented with hot tea and lively conversation.

We are settled in now for the night, looking forward to tomorrow’s well-earned rest day. Everyone is excited to be kicking off 2014 here on Aconcagua! Keep it locked in for more news from the crew…
