Trek to K2 – Day 2

Hello everyone:

 

We had a few problems with the website so we couldn’t post over the weekend. We have resolved the issues but ask that if you had subscribed to email updates before today, please resubscribe. I will be writing a separate post for each day, as there is a lot of information that Stuart has sent. Thanks!

These photos highlight the second day of hiking into K2.
