Here’s to our fabulous crew! Steve, Rick, Mike, Kevin & Erin, you really made us feel the magic & wonder of the wind & the weather and gave us 5 warm sunny days out of 7!! (Is that some kind of Summit record?!) Your excitement and knowledge were infectious and inspiring. We’re thrilled you enjoyed our dinners and didn’t criticize our desserts like Chef Ramsey!!

(We never did figure out high altitude baking . . .) What a neat experience to have the Summit as our Home Base after a long day of hiking (especially after crawling up 1600′ in .8 miles on all fours up the Gulf Wall!) And who could have anticipated seeing the Northern Lights (!!!) plus two nights of the Milky Way, with no wind! We loved every minute of volunteering our time on the Summit and can’t wait to come back. GOOD LUCK ON YOUR EXAM, RICK!
