Denali Expedition: Van Deventer and Team Find New Home at 11,000’

Monday, May 28th - 12:20 am PST It was a perfect day to cruise up to 11K Camp and find a new home. Where most of yesterday was dead calm and pretty warm with strong sun, we had a light but really cold breeze running through camp in the morning. It died right before we started walking and suddenly we were cooking in the solar oven. Just as we were about to explode into flames, the breeze came back, from straight ahead, and we went the direction of ice cubes. We dug quickly into our mountains of clothing and were back in comfort land. Having previewed the terrain yesterday, today was a breeze, and we cruised into camp like a hot egg salad. Now we are nicely installed in our new home for the next few days. It's snowing lightly, and beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Everyone is healthy and psyched. Tomorrow, we chill, then we will keep looking upward. RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer

So glad you have had such a wonderful climb so far.  It is hard to believe the extreme difference in the weather from hot to bone chilling cold.  Such an interesting and exciting experience for your team.  Safe travels!!! Love Mom and Dad to Rich Lewis

Woo-hoo!  Looks like amazing views up there!  What fantastic weather! We had a thunder storm here, which is very odd. I was hoping you weren’t experiencing anything similar. Things are great here - no problems.
Lots of love
