Hi friends and family,
Stephen here again. We’re working on a team name and should have something more distinctive in the next few days. Today we made it to the Hotel Ayelen in Penitentes and prepared our gear and food for the mules. So now we’re ready to start our trek into base camp. The drive to Penitentes was smooth and offered up some nice views of the Andes. We also stopped for a nice lunch in Uspallata for a nice lunch to break up the drive. Everyone’s feeling well prepared and is excited to shoulder their packs tomorrow! We’ll send an update from our camp at Pampa de Leñas tomorrow night!
