Greetings from high camp on Ixta!  We had a great day on the trail.  My day started a bit earlier than the rest of the team as I came up to camp to drop off some water early in the morning.  The rest of the group enjoyed bacon and eggs for breakfast before starting their hike at 9:30am.  It was very warm and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky for most of the day but we had a nice breeze to keep us from getting too hot.

We just finished with dinner and now everyone’s getting their gear organized for tonight’s we climb!  Hopefully the next time we check in it will be from the summit.
