Can you guess where we are?  Yes, 7,800’ camp on Mt. McKinley. The snows continue to blow up glacier and keep us from advancing higher on the mountain. The team is doing a fantastic job staying dug out and keeping spirits high. We have plenty of food and fuel, we just need to the weather to allow us to go a little higher. It will and all we need is a little patience. Wish us luck.

we are crossing fingers and toes that the weather
changes to let you up that mountain.
Kids at Valley View know of the McKinley climb and can find it on a map!

Hang in there! Jared and Dawn: Hope you’re both spending quality time with Jake and Leon in the posh eating delicious steak (or is that only on the Aconcagua climb?) and listening to music…
