Update Received: June 1, 2014. 10:29pm PST. Team 4 finally got a break in the weather and was able to move up to Camp 2.  The sun was out and by the time they got up to camp it was really warm out - nice enough to work on some tans. For dinner, Guide Ben made burritos with hashbrowns inside, which the team was very excited about. They are hoping to cache around Windy Corner on June 2nd if the weather permits.

It sounds like the Denali Gods are with team 3... and we at home couldn't be happier!!!

When you get to the summit, take a moment for gratitude for this beautiful planet and experiencing nature untouched by mankind. I am so proud of you!
