Elbrus Team #2 (The Crevasseputins) Acclimatize

Friends, Family & Loved Ones,

The overnight rain ended today just as we began our hike to the watchtower above Terskol. The light clouds and cooler weather came as a relief from the beating sun of yesterday. Along the way, we were treated to some good views of Terskol village, the East Summit of Elbrus and of course, the huge herd of grazing sheep and the wildflowers surrounding us. Some pics from our hike today are below:

After a late lunch at our hotel, we had time in the afternoon to relax and get our gear sorted for tomorrow, when we will move up to the huts.

The Team is feeling good and looking forward to getting on the mountain tomorrow.

Thanks for following us,

Carole & Vern Tejas
