May 7 DSUSA Team Checks in from Camp 1

It was Pete’s turn to call in today with the evening update.  They carried a load of food and fuel up the glacier to about 10,000 ft today, dug a pit in the snow, and cached it there to pick up in a few days.  After depositing the cache, deep in the snow and safe from marauding ravens, they returned to Camp 1 for another night.  Tomorrow they’ll pack up camp and move up to 11,000 feet, passing the cache along the way to return for it the following day.  Everyone on Denali enjoyed a beautiful day today, and hope for the nice weather to continue.

Here’s Pete checking in.
