Mt. McKinley: Nugent & Team Back Carry

Today saw pretty much constant snow all day long. Fortunately, the winds have remained calm and our crew was able to back-carry today despite the precipitation and stay right on schedule. We are now sitting pretty at 14,200’ with all of our provisions and fuel. The weather is supposed to remain a little bit squirrelly through tomorrow which will coincide nicely with a well-deserved rest day. We spent most of the afternoon after the back-carry chilling in the posh and sport eating. Good times. The crew is in good spirits and pumped for the climbing ahead!

just FYI for those at home—you know that these aren’t specifically photos from this trip or this team.  the guides only have sat phones, not an internet connection! 

these are just generic pictures of the sections they are currently on…

I’m sure if you had availability to electronic communication, your Marine friends would be calling you.  I sent an update to Ann Marie hoping she would pass on to everyone.  Love you sooooo and miss you beyond crazy.
