Day 16

The best night sleep ever. Even though we got up at 8:00 after 15 hours of work each day I felt fully rested. Coming down off the mountain to an oxygen rich environment allowed my body function much better and to heal from the climb. We had breakfast and finished the decent to base camp, where we organized our gear for the pending plane to pick us up. As we waited some clouds rolled in, delaying the plane’s arrival. Our nerves were calmed with a can of blue ribbon that was cached at base camp from the start of the climb. The plane flew around the mountainside and landed on the glacier beside us. At that point we knew we were going home and had the perfect expedition climbing Denali.
