Hey all,

Today we awoke to just about the same weather we went to bed with yesterday, that is mostly cloudy with a little wind and snow.  Knowing that we weren’t walking up hill in it, we had a multiple-course breakfast of bacon, fried tortillas with sugar, bagels, eggs, and even some sausage gravy.  By the time we finished up the weather had trended from poor to stormy.  With winds and snow on the rise, everyone helped in building some walls and re-anchoring our cook tent.  Looking above to high camp we radioed with some of the other teams. They said they were in pretty much the same weather and were staying put.  The whole team is keeping vibes positive as we wait for Denali to stop what it does best…..storm, storm, storm.

All the best,
RMI Guide Ben Liken
