We woke up around three to clear skies and no wind. We couldn’t resist this opening to cache gear up higher. We were traveling so well this morning that we decided to carry all the way up to McKinley’s 14,000’ camp. It was such a nice day up there that we spent around an hour and a half catching up with the Tyler Jones’ and Jake Beren’s teams. It looks like there should be good weather for a couple of days?? Cross your fingers for all of us!

The plan for tomorrow is to move our camp up to 14,000’. We are hoping for more of the same weather we had today.
