Duncan called in tonight from their 2nd camp on the hike in to base camp on Aconcagua which is known as Casa de Piedra, or House of Stone. It’s the first spot on the trip where they get a really good view of the mountain and they are camped in a beautiful meadow. It is our tradition to have a meal at this camp with the Arriero’s, the cowboys who are bringing our gear into base camp by mule for us. They cook over an open fire, and can do amazing things with steak over a fire. It sounds like Duncan enjoyed the meal and is having a good time so far!
