We are getting some great weather now. It is really sunny now and everyone is in good spirits. Oh, I have something that I forgot to tell you from the other day - at basecamp they had a black bear sighting by the park rangers. He wasn't in camp, but they could see him from camp. He was probably out looking for skiers (hahaha!). Oh, and at at 9,500' feet we had a wolf sighting as well - Pretty cool!
Well, everyone is warm and happy and starting to sink in the the groove of expedition camping. That's about it for now."
