Elevation: 14,200'

Yesterday we moved from 11,000 ft camp to our current home at about 14,200 ft.  We spent the entire day in a cloud with a little snow but it was still quite warm.

Today we are relaxing and enjoying another sunny day on the flanks of Denali. We picked up our cache this morning and had the rest of the day to rest and recuperate.  Everyone is having a great time and we excited to keep moving higher.

Wow! You are getting closer. Sounds like you have had more sun up there than Seattle has had all week.  I am glad to hear that you are all having a good time and the weather has been good.
