Vinson Massif: Stormy at Basecamp

We had higher hopes for today.  But no, we didn’t go anywhere.  It was stormy with a forecast for more, so we sat at Basecamp.  The mountain was partially visible from time to time, but mostly it was socked in with a thick layer of cloud covering all but the bottom of the western face.  As the afternoon wore on there was even a little wind right here in Basecamp (which is rare) but mostly it was just calm cool and cloudy.  The team rode it out in the tents; reading, writing, talking, eating and sleeping.  By evening the sun had broken free of the clouds that were piled up against the mountain and things got downright pleasant for a while.  Fingers crossed for more pleasantries tomorrow. 

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
