Mt. McKinley: Mike Walter & Team Resting at 14 Camp

Elevation: 14,200'

After a nice evening of sunshine, we awoke again today to light snow and wind, and very limited visibility. Again, this is fine with us as we could use another rest day before moving to high camp at over 17,000’. The weather forecast this morning indicated that we may see some significant snow tomorrow, before this system moves out later in the week.
We’re all enjoying some down time, but we are eager to climb higher also. Patience is paramount as we sit in this holding pattern. We’ll keep you posted with our progress with regular updates. If anybody out there can pull some strings and hook us up with perfect, sunny and warm weather for our summit bid, we’ll buy you a beer when we get back to civilization!

Stan et al—Snow!  I would love to see snow, right now! I hope you are not too bored and are able to read and rest!  The scenery looks very nice. We are fine.  Take care, love me

We are watching and hoping for more sun and clear weather. Patience is a good thing…wish I had some but you are making great progress and soon you will summit! Love from your Vermont buddies.
