Vacas Valley Team 5 Arrives

Hi everyone,

All members of our team have arrived safely in Mendoza with everyone’s equipment. After a gear check and some last minute shopping, we had a small siesta before heading out to dinner at one of the many great restaurants in the city. Folks had different cuts of meat from the asado menu, salads, grilled vegetables and a few varieties of dessert. We also sampled some of the region’s well known wines.

The next part of our journey will be to leave the tree-lined streets of Mendoza and head into the mountains. Folks are both nervous and excited for what lies ahead!
