After a beautiful day yesterday our Denali Prep Seminar broke camp early this morning and made short work of the Muir Snowfield given the conditions – arriving at roughly 1:30 this afternoon. The GPS’s came in handy today as the forecasted winds & snow came in right on time – as Greg put it when he called in (via radio) “we couldn’t see much of the snow field so I really can’t tell you what it looked like”.
Hot cocoa and tea are first in order this afternoon – after that the team will settle in and do some “classroom” work inside the hut at Camp Muir. I think citrus pork loin and mashed potatoes are on the menu tonight before a good night’s sleep.
Tomorrow’s forecast isn’t much better but it looks like the winds will die down and the weather will be improving later this week. Perfect training conditions for these guys!
