Aconcagua Dispatch 1/21/09
Hello everyone, this is Pablo calling in from Camp Canada. Today we did an acclimatization hike up toward our next camp location at Nido de Condors, but we stopped a little short of our goal due to deteriorating weather and thunderstorms. We are resting in our tents now and looking forward to a dinner of fried chicken and mixed veggies. We are hoping for better weather tomorrow so we can make our move up to Nido de Condors. I will check in again soon.
Here is a quick note from our team members to their family and friends back home:
