Kristen called at 1:27 pm on June 9th with this dispatch:
“Hello! It’s Kristen this time to give a dispatch. Yesterday, we took our cache up past the fixed lines and Washburn Thumb. It was a really awesome, clear day on the ridge. It took us about 8 hours but the Team rocked. We decided to take a rest day today and we just got done eating some hash browns Forest cooked up. Tomorrow, depending on the weather, we will move up to High Camp. We’re listening to the forecast every night. It keeps saying we’ll get some big fronts, but so far nothing. The sun is nice for now. Talk to you later.”
