Off to Matterhorn Creek trailhead

Sorry for the delay in posting! We have been out of service all day! As of now Andrew has completed Redcloud, and Sunshine and is now on his way to Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn. He had mentioned previously his climb up Wilson Peak and Sneffels have been challenging and a minor setback for timing sake because of the hard packed snow in the dark. It made route finding a bit more difficult. He even said he was doing some “self arrest glissading” because the snow was so hard!
The day has been so fun so far! James and Andrew drove Cinnamon Pass and Will and I took the kids the long way through Lake City meeting up at silver crk /grizzly gulch trailhead where Kim was waiting for us!(she arrived at 3 am!) We also met here SJRon where he was also waiting to cheer Andrew on! He had a sign for Andrew on the back of his ATV. The kids stayed entertained by fishing at his lake! (Thanks RON!)We stayed entertained by jammin out to country music and making new friends and listening to their own life threatening adventure stories!! As Andrew came running down to meet us we had “the final countdown” blasting! He sleeps when he can in the car and we do our best to keep him ibuprofened up, rubbed out and well fed! WAY TO GO ANDREW! keep up the great effort!
