January 13, 2008 –Back in Mendoza

Arriving in Horcones, ready to go!

Here we are at the end of another great Berg Adventures Aconcagua expedition and we decided that best way to try to describe our experiences for the past 2 weeks is by presenting some photo highlights of our days as the we began the year 2008 climbing to the top of the Western Hemisphere.

We had great times, difficult times; and we ended with summit success.  We arrived not knowing each other and finished the trip as friends and most important of all, a team!

Kate's smile became a familiar and encouraging sight for us each day

We visited the hostel near Plaza de Mulas; an hour hike and good acclimatization
