Day Two - Move to high camp
After an epic wind storm last night, we woke to a beautiful day - warm and no wind and not a cloud in the sky.
But back to the wind storm: no tents wreaked at our camp, but the wind was over 60 MPH. It was so cool that I had my headphones off in the middle of the night just to listen to the wind. I made a few audio recordings too!
A different story at high camp. In this picture George Dunn met up with us at Camp 1 on their descent after 100% summit success and is telling us about the 70-80 MPH wind that broke tent poles and shredded one their tents at high camp last night. Yozzer!
We had another great day hiking today in nearly prefect conditions that look to be holding for our summit bid tomorrow starting around 3am. I'm feeling GREAT and super excited about tomorrow's serious climbing. Thanks Tootz and Monika, Alaina and Carl for getting me ready on all fronts.
To the top of the lower 48!!!
