Summit camp staff, with help from visitors from Denver and SCO, have shut down all summer buildings and relocated them to berms. Final flight of the summer season on 28 August brought 7 DV’s lead by the US Ambassador to Denmark, Carla Sands, up to Summit for a site visit. They were impressed by what they saw and heard during the brief 2 hours allotted to a tour of the Big House and Science facilities. Rachel, Rudy, Hannah, and Mara waved goodbye with more than a little relief when everyone else boarded the Herc at 16:00 WGDT, leaving them to settle into the first phase of the winter season.
