Aconcagua Dispatch 1/17/09
Hello from Plaza de Mulas! We have arrived here at 3,400 meters after a nine hour hike to base camp. We are enjoying a rest day today; taking time to organize our food and gear for the ascent of the upper mountain. Our group had a chance to visit the doctor, and found that we are all doing great. Tomorrow we will do a carry to Camp Canada. Everyone on the team is feeling really strong. We are fortunate to have full porter support to carry our equipment to base camp. This will allow us to be light and strong for the climb! I would like to say hello to our friends and families and let them know that everyone is healthy and happy. Ciao!
