Rest day at 14,200′

WIND!  The team tells me that the Park Service tents stationed at 14 camp were recording gusts of wind clocked at 50mph yesterday, so lead guide Mike Burmeister compensated for the bad weather by cooking a few hot meals and telling a few jokes.  The team continues to be strong after carrying a load of gear up to the top of the fixed lines yesterday, so after today they will be poised to move to high camp, the last time they will have to haul their camp up with them.  So let’s all hope for the wind to die down so this team can get its’ summit bid.
