Elevation: 18,510'

Yeehaw!  We did it!
The team took full advantage of perfect weather and great route conditions on Mt. Elbrus today. We could not help but stand on top this morning.

We returned to the Garabashi Hut, our home for the last few nights, packed our gear and continued our descent.  We are back down in the Baksan valley at the base of Mt. Elbrus. Let the celebration begin!

Hi,  Mama Z here.  So exciting to ride and hike the mountain with you.  I am exhausted.  Good luck with tomorrow and the bathroom situation.  I heard about that.  Can’t wait for the next set of pictures.  Love Mama Z.  Tell Jennifer I love her

Hi,
Glad your first dose of the altitude finds everyone in good standing.  You are all amazing and Jennifer is “something special”  She will understand that message.  Keeping up on you through the blog.  Take good care of them Casey.  Love Mama Z.

Congratulations to all! There was never a doubt in our minds!  Bring home some caviar and we’ll have a vodka party to celebrate when you get home.  So glad everyone is safe and sound. Xoxo
