Team 7/Travis and the Mules began the day with some snow then cached in t-shirts at Windy Corner before returning to Tasty Bites and brownies

Hey ya’ll, this is Seth with Alpine Ascents 7/Travis and the Mules.

Today we started off with quite a bit of snow and low visibility, but put a cache in around Windy Corner (at 13,500 feet). And the weather ended up being really, really nice. Took a break at Windy Corner with t-shirts on, so it wasn’t very windy which was excellent.

Returned down to camp, had a nice meal, some fudge brownies, some Tasty Bites. And yeah, everyone’s doing good. And we will check back in with you tomorrow. Alright, bye.
