Brandon and Kristine made it to base camp yesterday. Brandon said the flight from Union Glacier to Mt. Vinson was pretty incredible. He took some video of the flight, so we can probably expect an upload when they get back. They slept fine, despite the fact the sun never sets, and got up in the late morning. It is so cold that they have to wait until it warms up in the late morning before getting out of their tent.
Today, they went for a short climb up Ski Peak, and then went back to camp for dinner. Tomorrow they will climb to the next camp.
Stay tuned for more!
