Last night’s clear skies and stars led to… cloud cover this AM, as well as rain (though less than yesterday). The picture below shows the maximum progress we were able to make towards the Yellow Valley basecamp and Carstensz Pyramid.
So, in the afternoon we went to lunch in the neighboring gated community and on a hike in the jungle.
Tomorrow will be another 04.30 wakeup and 05.30 departure to the airport for the first team. Hopefully, my next cyber cast will be by Sat phone from the base of Carstensz Pyramid.
Thanks for staying tuned as the adventure continues! – Paul Koubek
