June 9 Team Summit Day!

Caitlin called in this evening as the team returned to high camp from their trip to the summit.  Caitlin said everyone is back and safe after getting within feet of the summit as an electrical storm came in.  They descended quickly to get out of the lightning and it sounded a bit exciting.   It’s almost unheard of to see lightning that high on Denali, but it has been a warm summer in Alaska.  They plan to sleep in tomorrow after a long day, and start descending in the evening and travel through the cold of night again.
