May 28 Team Moves to 14 Camp

Today Team Alpha Whisky (May 28) made the move from 11,222′ to 14,000′. They cruised past Windy Corner and yesterday’s cache site and plateaued in the beautiful Genet basin. The views from 14 Camp are stunning—Mount Foraker is right in your face and the Alaska range seems to go on forever.

Looking south across the 14,200′ camp. Mount Foraker (17,402′), the second tallest peak in the Alaska Range, dominates the horizon.

 

The team is moving well and feeling good and spirits are high. Here’s Jonathan with the report:
