Assistants Trip to Aconcagua

President took his Assistants, Elders Wiest and Rodriguez to Uspallata (part of a District) for a conference. After the meetings, they were so close to the highway to Aconcagua, they continued on the road up the canyon to view the peak. The day was cold and windy, but they were able to get glimpses of it when the clouds would part. As you can see in the picture below, the peaks are covered with clouds. Some say that the peak creates its own atmosphere and cloud cover because the snow never melts from the peaks and the wind is always swirling.

Aconcagua, "The Sentinel of Stone". Its name has roots in the Quechua language and when translated means "The Sentinel of Stone".

Aconcagua, at 22830 feet (6959 meters) is the highest point in the Western and Southern hemisphere, towering above the surrounding peaks in the Argentine Andes.
