Aconcagua the Stone Sentinel Every muscle in my body seemed to relax as I rested for the first time in what felt like a week It had only been six hours though and we were only at base camp 14800 feet above sea level As my head pounded probably because of the altitude I had a disturbing thought We still had almost eight thousand vertical feet to climb until the summit Thinking of this my heart sank How could I make it if I felt this bad already My head was throbbing the mere thought of food disgusted me and my legs were Jell-O However as I sank into my sleeping bag I was filled with the peace of the near dream state I was in Maybe I could make it I could summit Mount Aconcagua the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas After months of preparation and seeming a week of travel it was a relief when we finally began hiking Now it was all up to me The plane had not crashed The vans that brought us to the trailhead had not careened off the winding mountain roads Surrounded by beautiful country my only concern was putting one foot in front of the other Soon the first day was over My legs felt it a little but it felt good to know that we were that much closer to our goal and still feeling strong The next few days would be much different As we followed the river that would eventually lead us to base camp the trail became less and less fun The rocks that had once been easy to avoid now jumped at my feet Hills that had once been scaled almost without a thought now made my heart race as if I had just finished a marathon By the end of the third day and thirty miles from the trailhead we had finally made it to Base Camp Base
