Mt. Vinson – Day 13

Finally, the day we had been waiting for: our flight back to Union Glacier! We packed up our camp and cached the excess gear for the next group before getting in the Twin Otter for the scenic return flight. Luckily I was able to stay away on this leg of the trip so I got lots of great photos.

Once we were back at Union, we reconnected with all of the other climbers who, it turns out, had just been stuck at Union like we had been at VBC. Thankful that we hadn’t missed anything, we shared our stories and made final plans for our return to civilization.
