Todd Rutledge, co-owner of Mountain Trip, called in the team report this evening. The team made good time today hiking up the Vacas Valley, following the Vacas River, to their first camp at Pampas de Lenas . Everyone is feeling well and doing great.

I’m sure a nice bottle of Malbec, locally produced, will be served, as well!
Here’s Todd, with his first ever expedition dispatch:
