Wishing my buddies Dori, Zak and team @RMIExpeditions safe travels up Aconcagua tonight.
It was the night before Christmas, and all through the tent not a creature was stirring…except for RMI’s first Aconcagua ascent. Our cache was placed at Camp Two with care, in hopes we will soon be moving there. 18,000 feet is so high, we may have seen reindeer fly by. We boot skied down to camp with glee, making the best of Aconcagua’s scree. We filled our bellies with tasty bites, before we lost the warm sunlight. We crawled into our tents snacking on treats, before dreaming of tomorrow’s Christmas Day eats. Oatmeal and quesadillas they are the best, we can’t wait to have a Christmas Day rest. Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight. RMI Guides JM Gorum, Avery Parrinello, and Hannah Smith
