Mt. McKinley: Hailes Update

Mt. McKinley’s “Windy Corner” lived up to it’s name today. We carried a load of food and gear into a head wind to a cache site at about 13,500 ft. Luckily once we made the turn around the corner the winds died and we enjoyed the bright, warm sunshine while we buried our cache and took a break before heading back down to camp.

We will rest tomorrow in preparation for our move to our next camp.

Mike would like to wish a “Happy Birthday to Papa George”.
