If all goes according to plan, we should have a small helicopter bring more supplies up today. The llamas have not been able to come up due to the snow. We have to have a helicopter resupply us. It is not looking so good right now. There is a low cloud hanging on to the mountain. I will keep you posted if we do fly today. As for the weather, the low last night was 29 with a high yesterday of 36 degrees. We currently have 7" of snow on the ground. It is slowly, but surely, melting away. I will add some pictures later of the resupply if it happens. If you are hiking up today, please be careful. There is still ice in places. Happy hiking.
