Into Shira Camp

Since the last dispatch we have passed through Camp 1 and today moved up to Camp 2 (Shira Camp). Perched at 12,400 ft, everyone seems to feel pretty good and having a great time. The weather has been somewhat fickle, but never discouraging. An occasional spit of rain and cloud cover followed by intense, radiating sun.
Tomorrow we will cruise up the Shira plateau, up and over Lava Tower and down into Barranco Camp. It will be another day full of panoramic vistas and beautiful terrain.
Till then...
