June 26th team at high camp

The crew spent a day watching the snow fall and wind blow today up at 17,200 ft on Denali.  They got out of their tents to walk about a bit, and fortify the snow block walls that they have protecting their tents, but it was mostly a tent day.  They are doing great, but bad weather up high is not the most fun part of high altitude mountaineering.   It does make for good stories when they return though.  The weather is forecast to be similar for tomorrow, so they could have another day of waiting up there for good summit weather.

Ben called in this evening.
