Easy like a Tuesday Morning
Today was essentially a rest day - we walked up to about 14,500 feet, where we got a great view of a glacial lake and surrounding mountains. Definitely the best views of the trip so far.
The weather clouded over around 1:00 pm, so we tried to keep warm in our sleeping bags or in the dining room after lunch.
4:30 pm is happy hour, which consists of us drinking various types of tea and playing cards. We have coerced Dylan to join our card games so we now have a Canada vs. USA spade tournament. So far the USA is a perfect 3-0.
Speaking of weather, our eyes are now set on the summit forecast for the next week - as we get closer to the top this is becoming a concern. Right now we are set to summit on the 22nd - the weather looks very good up until the 21st, when the winds are supposed to pick up significantly for several days afterwards. We will continue to monitor the forecast in the hopes that the weather will change for the better (our last two climbs were also effected by weather).
