Mike and Hannah here checking in with Team Dances With Mules. Today was a rest day for our team and everyone took full advantage! We spent the day dialing out our gear and making our final preparations for the upper mountain. We enjoyed three wonderful meals provided by our amazing basecamp staff. It snowed about an inch this afternoon, as temps dropped and the winds picked up. Despite that, our team stayed cozy in our basecamp dining tent and enjoyed hot drinks and good company. The snow made the already amazing views even better.
Everyone is feeling great and is very excited about moving to our first upper mountain camp, camp Canada at 16,600’. We have some wind in the forecast for tomorrow, but aside from that we have a pretty good outlook with a high pressure system bringing us blue skies.
We all send our love back home and will check in tomorrow evening from camp Canada via satellite phone.
Mike, Hannah, and Dances With Mules.
