First Aconcagua Summit Photos!!

Greetings everybody!!

We reached the summit of Aconcagua (22,841′, 6962m) on December 15, 2010.  We were blessed with wonderful weather for climbing.  Winds were light and the sun remained uninhibited by clouds above.  As the afternoon progressed clouds gathered below giving us a feeling of being on top of the world.  We were in fact on the summit of highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere!!

Pictures are currently being uploaded to the SMI photo gallery web site.  We should have all of them organized within a couple days.  Below is a sneak preview of the photo gallery featuring a few summit photos of the team.  We will post a note when all the photos are ready to be viewed.  You are welcome to follow progress here:  Aconcagua December 2010

A big congratulations on a job well done are in order to Fred Simmons, Bill Simon, and April Mayhew.

Way to go!!!
