Alp 7, to be known as Travis and the Mules, cached at 10,000 then returned to camp to lounge in the beautiful sunny weather

Hey everyone, this is Seth with Alp 7. Our new Team name (subject to change) is Travis and the Mules.

Another beautiful day here in the Alaska Range, super warm and no wind, really again one of the nicest spells I’ve seen in a while. The Team is doing great, we carried a bunch of food and fuel up to about 10,000 feet and put a cache in, and then cruised on back down, and lounged around the afternoon and about ready to have us some Tasty Bites and dip for dinner tonight here at 7,800.

Yeah, everyone is doing good, the plan is to move tomorrow and go from there, just taking it one day at a time. But everyone says hello to the folks back home.
Just to recap – that is Marisa, Robert, Seth, Sam, Chris, Marybeth, Chris, and Nikki. Yeah we’re all doing great and looking forward to another good day here on Denali.

Talk to you all later.
