Cache Day for the May 28 Team

The team moved a load of equipment and supplies up to a cache site at 9800′. A three week Denali expedition requires a huge amount of supplies, and the process of caching helps the team move efficiently. In addition, it helps their bodies acclimate to the ever changing altitude. A cache site is literally a place where the team digs a huge, deep hole and buries bags of supplies. The guide team carefully marks the location of the site, and a couple of days later the team will return to pick up the cached items.

Here’s Lara with the team update:
