Checking in from Camp 1 -

We made our move today from Basecamp to Camp 1. We got an early start this morning, and left camp at 8:45 am. Even though we had hiked most of the trail yesterday, the landscape is amazing. Looking out over the green foothills of Elbrus, with the ever changing light is a real treat. And the weather cooperated for us all day, with a few sprinkels as we finished the last stretch to camp. But just as we got moved into the tents, it began snowing very hard with some thunderstorms in the valley below. We are now resting, waiting for the storm to pass, and will begin dinner soon. Tomorrow we need to go back down about 800 feet to retrieve our cache that we left yesterday, and then back up to camp.

The group did an excellent job today, and everyone is healthy.
