Noah’s Ark doesn’t have anything on us! Yesterday the mountain received a little precipitation and as our team approached Camp One, we discovered a new river running through camp.

Not only are tents up and people are settled in but we are on ditch digging crew to divert our new river, which we named Rio Horiskey.

The entire team did great getting up to 16,500 feet. We are camped a little higher than the normal camp because we like peace, quiet and pristine water. The agenda for tonight is to make hot drinks and eat another fine meal.

I have a little surprise for the team. In honor of playoff weekend I brought some Green Bay Packers hot dogs. You know…for good luck!

Hey G-Money - Blue is too young and carefree to know any better, but Barley-boy, being the sensitive type and wise to your antics, has fallen into a deep depression in your absence. I’m treating his symptoms with extra pig ears and peanut-butter stuffed bones.  I expect a full recovery this weekend since we’re hosting the Lucky Dog Ranch K-9s.  Happy climbing! xo

Go Packers! That team is in our blood, Mike…just like our beloved yellow and green Ducks. Has to mean lots of good luck ahead!  Maralee
