Phil & Eric,
We had great weather again today on the climb to Shira camp. Everyone is enjoying the views. The group was sad to say goodbye to one team member who elected to go down early, but everyone is doing well. Here’s a photo from the traverse into Shira camp. Tomorrow we have a long but exciting day, hiking to just under 15000 feet to Lava Tower on the way to Barranco camp.
The group is anticipating the “Zone of Weird Plants” along the way.
