Back to Basecamp and Homeward Bound

Yesterday our team descended down the mountain and into the clouds, back to Vinson Base Camp. Low clouds had the camp socked in, but the good weather held long enough for an optimal summit day. They spent the evening relaxing and preparing to make the flight by Twin Otter back to Union Glacier Camp this morning. From there, if everything stays on schedule, the team will organize all of their equipment and board the Ilyushin for their final flight back to Punta Arenas and civilization. Listen to the last audio update from Mt. Vinson below and stay tuned for the last blog update after the team is safely back in Chile.
