January 6 Aconcagua Team Moving Up the Vacas Valley

Lead Guide Fermin called in the team report today. The group hiked about eight miles up the deep Vacas Valley to their first camp at Pampas de Leñas.

The hike took them through high desert terrain, with scrub plants, bristly grasses and the occasional colorful chuckawalla lizard. They walked along the west bank of the Rio Vacas, passing several tributary creeks and gullies as they made their way to Pampas de Leñas (Prairie of Firewood).

Fermin prepared a traditional “asado” of grilled meats, one of his many specialties. The team will be well fueled for their adventure!

Here’s Fermin:
