Dhaulagiri Expedition 2002

Tuesday, April 9, 2002: I spoke with Mountain Link Expedition Leader Robert Link, Tuesday April 9th at 6 pm PST. It was 6 am Nepal time. He said they spent the night in Hidden Valley. They are one day away from Base Camp. The group broke trail up to French Pass on Monday. He said their spirits are high, even with the tough slog to base camp. The trekkers left the group to return to Kathmandu on Monday, April 8th. They will be boarding a plane to return to the US on April 11 at approximately 1:40 pm.

Everyone sends a big "Hello" to their families and friends!
