Elevation: 7,800'

Good morning everyone!
It’s a beautiful day here on the lower Kahiltna Glacier.  Our team did an excellent job of moving to 7,800’ at the base of Ski Hill yesterday.  We got an early flight to base camp and spent a few hours getting organized and reviewing glacier travel techniques.
After a solid 8 hours in the sleeping bags we are again packing and looking uphill in the direction of 9,500’.
We’ll be sure to check in after our move today!
