The Expedition Skills Seminar - Winter reached Camp Muir this afternoon.  They started from Paradise at 9:45 this morning and pulled into Camp Muir at 4:45. The weather was fantastic! It was like a summer day for much of the hike. The snowfield was in great shape. As they gained some elevation, some high clouds came in and they entered into a cloud cap. Presently it is fairly nice and a little windy but they are enjoying Camp Muir at just over 10,000’.  The team looks forward to doing a bunch of training tomorrow.
