Team Mountain Mama: Back in Bali

Team Mountain Mama awoke at 05.00 at Carstensz Basecamp to some of the nicest weather we have seen this trip – which gave us hopes of flying.  Indeed – fly we did!  We went from base camp this morning to Timika, arriving in time to grab a quick shower and transfer onward to our flight to Bali – where we have just moved in to our hotel and are freshening up before a celebratory dinner!Helicopter PIckup.jpgTeam back in Bali.jpg
