Hi all,
Had a great first day on the Mt. Shuksan 6-day Denali Prep course.  Jim and Joy showed up prepared and ready to go.  After a gear check, and another cup of coffee, we headed out of town to the Shannon Ridge trail head.  We started up the trail with sun on our shoulders, laughing about the 30% chance of rain.  After a couple hours hiking we left the trees behind and enjoyed great views of Mt. Baker.  With these views, however, also came the end of our laughter as we noticed dark clouds approaching.  Though we did get a light rain in the last 1/2 hour before getting to the low bivy camp site, we had a great day.  Jim and Joy are in good spirits and staying dry in there tent, currently discussing dinner options.  We’ll see what the weather gods have in store for us tomorrow.
