Rest Day at Plaza de Mulas base camp

Asado (Argentine BBQ) at Plaza de Mulas base camp - Cacho and Garrett

Our Aconcagua team enjoyed a nice rest day at Plaza de Mulas base camp as they prepare to make their first carry to Camp 1 tomorrow.  Once again, here’s team member Peter Horsman with the expedition dispatch:

Hello everyone, this is Peter Horsman calling in from the Madison Mountaineering Aconcagua expedition!

We had a great rest day here at Plaza de Mulas Aconcagua base camp.  Really good, kind of mixed weather with some snow, some rain, some hail.  It’s a little bit chilly but beautiful views of the huge mountain ahead of us.  We are having a really great time – we’re all in great spirit, we’re having a lot of fun together and we’re excited about tomorrow because tomorrow we are going to do a carry to Camp 1.  And then we’re going to come back here for the rest of the night.

Everything is going well.  We’re all in good spirits.  And quick “Hi!” to Melina.  I love you and I’ll see you soon.  Bye-bye!
