We had a great day here in the Horcones Valley. We woke up, had breakfast, and then started our acclimatization day trekking up to Plaza Francia (4228m/13,871ft) at the base of the south face of Aconcagua. It was a nice hike. We had a little bit of shade and some nice views of the south face.
We returned in the early afternoon to camp, had a little rest, and then had a nice barbeque here Argentinian-style asado in the Confluencia Camp. We had some beef, chicken, some chorizo sausage, veggies to go along with it, and little bit of red wine. A very traditional, pleasant evening here in Argentina. We are looking forward to hiking up to Plaza de Mules tomorrow.
All’s well here on Aconcagua!
