Mt. McKinley Expedition: Hailes & Team Rest at 11,200’ Camp

Elevation: 11,200'

Rest, rest, rest…the order of the day was rest. After five days of mountaineering work on Mt. McKinley everyone enjoyed our first day of eating, napping, reading, more eating and then bed time.

As luck would have it that the first windy, snowy day coincided with our day of rest. Perfect timing. As we get in bed for the night the sky is clearing and the wind has subsided.  We are hoping for another good day tomorrow as we climb to 14,000 feet.

Happy anniversary Steve and Denise.

Andy, sorry I missed your call, but we’ve been thinking of you!  Stay strong and safe! Mom says hi too!  Good luck with the rest of the climb…..then you will need a beach vacation to recoup!

Pete, it’s always great to hear you all are doing so well.  I’ll be with Iggy I think when you get back, so get ready for some major dog love. Bisous, Katie
