Mt. Elbrus: Grom & Team Arrive in St. Petersburg

Yesterday was a rest day for us in Cheget!  Most of us took it easy, relaxed, packed up gear, and did a little exploring around the Baksan Valley.  Rumor has it that a few trout were caught and cooked for lunch!

Today was our travel day from the mountain to St. Petersburg.  It was a pretty long day with the four-hour bus ride to the airport and then a three-hour flight.  It was a pretty uneventful day, but the team is doing very well.  Everyone is happy to be here in this beautiful city and looking forward to our city tour tomorrow.

Good job, Kim, Liz, and everybody!  Be nice to the folks in St. Petersburg.  Remember: you represent America.

You all look great. Hope you get a chance to see some of the Hermitage.
