Aconcagua Team Mulasses Go Celebrate!

Hello there friends family and loved ones

This is Vern Tejas reporting in for the last time for a Team Mulasses! Everyone has taken showers and celebrated our success with food and libations. Most are now winging their way back home.

It was a fine team and despite several setbacks we did quite well on the highest mountain in the Western and Southern Hemisphere. Our high success rate was due to everyone pulling together as a team and kind winds.

Thank you for joining us on our climb of “The Stone Sentinel.”

All our best,Carolina & Vern Tejas

Aconcagua Team Mulasses Descend After Summit Success!

Hola friends, family and loved ones!,

Up early to clear windy skys, we made good time trekking down to park entrance. Then we jumped on the bus for Mendoza and all are know either showering or eating .. Yum ,good to eat real food again!

To summarize our cllimb, it was awesome! We had great weather and beautiful views. Though our summit day was long (14 hours) it was a good challenge. Alll that attempted, accomplished the summit. What a great team we are!

Then of course we had to celebrate in Base camp with burgers and brews!

Tomorrow it’s off to explore the famous local vineyards. Stay tuned!

All our best,Carolina & Vern Tejas and Team Mulasses
