The team is on their way! They began the trek today, heading up the Vacas Valley for a relatively short 4 hour trek to the first camp, Pampa de Llenas. After a lot of rain and stormy weather for the last few days in Mendoza, they were pleased to see blue skies and enjoyed the sunshine for the first day of the trek. This evening they settled into camp and the Arrieros (Mule Drivers) cooked up a classic Asado dinner over the open fire. They are all doing great and settled in for the night, tomorrow is a longer day of trekking as they continue the 3 day trek to the Plaza Argentina basecamp.
