January 20, 2006 - Back in Mendoza

Hi, this is Wally reporting from Mendoza.  The accomplishment of our January 17th summit is still fresh.  These photos may give some idea of the effort that went into that day and the beauty that we experienced. 

Our little team is now back in Mendoza, tired, proud and ready to enjoy a few days of relaxing since we are off the mountain three days ahead of schedule.

In the early morning as we climbed we saw the Shadow
of Aconcagua cast against the Andes
