Duncan and crew at Base Camp

The team flew to base camp today!  They met early this morning in Anchorage and drove up to Talkeetna where they checked in with the National Park Service, and then went to the airport in hopes of flying onto the glacier.  The weather had been preventing flights from getting in to the AK Range for a couple of days, but it broke just in time for them to get in this afternoon, so they are off to a good start.   The plan is to get up early tomorrow morning/tonight and start up the Kahiltna Glacier towards Camp 1 at 7,800ft.   They’ll travel during the coldest time of the day down on the lower glacier in hopes of having a frozen snow surface which makes for much easier conditions.
