May 18 Denali West Buttress Team – Storm Day at Camp 3 (14,200′)

The May 18 Team is doing well and in good spirits at Camp 3 (14,200′). The team spent the day drinking coffee, eating, and resting during a stormy day at camp after a couple hard days getting up to 14 Camp. To beat the “Cabin Fever” the team has turned to poetry:

The Cremation of Dan McGee:

There are strange things done in the midnight sun
      By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
      That would make your blood run cold;
The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,
      But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge
      I cremated Sam McGee.
Have a listen:
