Aconcagua: King & Team Enjoy Snow and Rest at Camp 1
A thunderstorm skirted us late last night as we fell asleep to the occasional flash of lightning and clap of thunder. Luckily, it was short lived and we dozed off listening to the tapping of heavy, wet snow hitting the tent late into the night. As the sun hit camp this morning, we crawled out excited to see all of Camp 1 and the slopes above us coated in a couple inches of fresh snow - quite the refreshing contrast to the myriad of browns, tans and grays up to this point. The team enjoyed a long, leisurely breakfast and hot drinks to start off the rest day with some quesadillas to follow for lunch. Sometimes rest days can be just as tough, testing one’s patience a bit, but everyone is doing a great job taking advantage of today to continue getting stronger for our next big push to Camp 2. We’ll be keeping our eye on the weather which looks to have more snow in store for us, but in the meantime we’re taking full advantage of some really beautiful, calm days here at Camp 1. Hopefully the next time you hear from us we’ll be settled in at Camp 2 with a hot drink in hand, feeling accomplished, but still aware of the effort that lies before us high up on the Stone Sentinel.
