Team Tundra Wookies/Alp 3 cached under sunny skies just past Windy Corner then returned to burritos

Hi, this is Matthew Emht calling for Alpine Ascents Team 3 on Denali, the Tundra Wookies. We had a great day today, we carried up to Windy Corner and put a cache in just around Windy Corner (above 13,000 feet).

The group is doing good and looking forward to a rest day tomorrow. We were poked out above the clouds coming out of camp and had a nice sunny day, no wind, very little wind.

And yeah, everybody’s tired but feeling good, looking forward to a nice burrito meal for dinner. That’s the news, we’ll keep you posted. Thanks.
