Back down to 7,800 ft for June 12 team

Karen called this evening from our June 12 expedition heading back down to base camp.  They stopped at 7,800 ft ,Camp 1, and spent the warm part of the day there resting.   They’ll wait for the coldest part of the night and travel the last 5 miles down to base camp.  This section can be challenging this time of year, the warm slushy snow makes the crevasse bridges a bit more difficult.   They plan to head down tonight, and hopefully it will freeze so they can walk on a frozen glacier surface instead of soft, slushy snow.  If all goes well, they could be in Talkeetna for brunch tomorrow.
