Alp 2 spent a beautiful day resting at High Camp as they watched teams head up to the summit and return successfully

Hello friends, family, and loved ones, Paul Koubek cybercasting for Alp 2 Denali expedition.

Today was a rest day for our team at High Camp (at 17,200 feet), was a beautiful day. We got up late, we ate lots of hot drinks and cereal, and watched various teams head out for the summit and return successfully from the summit. We… (transmission garbled) way back down from the summit right now.

Thanks for following our cybercast, the forecast looks good and we are planning to head out tomorrow morning to nab the summit ourselves. We’ll let you know how it goes, stay tuned.
