Our trip just keeps getting better and better.

Today we woke up with a crispy couple of new inches of snow in one of the most beautiful places in Earth, Alaska.  We enjoyed breakfast with our teammates and got ready to learn about snow anchors, belay systems and other technical systems.  The weather is little stormy so we decided to stay around camp to train today.

After lunch we helped pack the bush plane runway and got to move our legs and exercise for a bit.  The group is doing great and enjoy each other’s company.  Tomorrow we are hoping for a good window of weather to go climb.
