We celebrated Father’s Day on Mt. McKinley with a move from 11 Camp to 14 Camp. The team did a super solid job getting up here with enough gas to build a good camp just before the weather came in. It sure feels good to be in position to move a bit higher after a day of rest and training tomorrow. Now it’s off to bed to enjoy a good night’s rest after a big day in the mountains.

Thanks to all the Poppas out there, we love you.

Back in the Lower 48. Thinking of you all… Glad you’re doing well! We went fishing and kayaking in Glacier Bay and sightseeing in Denali Park. We’re rooting for you all… Stay strong, be safe, and have an absolute blast!
