Team 6/The Justified and Ancients of Mu Mu enjoyed awesome burritos in a bit of snow and fog at 11,000 feet

Hey everybody, It’s Nick Mullan… (transmission garbled).

Everyone is doing good, had some awesome burritos for dinner. A little bit snowy and foggy here, but for the most part a pretty good day for traveling.

Our plan for tomorrow is to walk back downhill and pick up our cache at about 10,000 feet and then return here to 11,000 and go from there.

We’ll probably be here for at least three probably, four nights. But yeah, everyone is psyched, we’re doing good, and yeah we’ll check back in with you tomorrow, all right, bye.
