Expedition to Mt. Aconcagua, Argentina (December 2010 - January 2011), page 1
Vacas River valley on the three-day trek in to the base of Mt. Aconcagua.
First view of the mountain looming in the background.
Looking back after climbing out of the valley
High mountain fashions -- protection against intense sun and high winds.
Some rugged terrain along the way.
Nice views at each rest stop.
Looking like Kenny from South Park (it's cold up there!).
Barren but beautiful countryside.
