June 6 adaptive trip- a change of plans

Due to unseasonably thin snowpack, the team was informed by the air taxi service that their original plan, which was to fly in to the Ruth glacier and attempt Mt. Dickey, would have to change.  Thin snow means that crevasses are bigger and airstrips are less secure, so lead guide Drew made a quick decision to fly to the Eldridge glacier, an area to the east of the Ruth that Drew is familiar with.  There are still plenty of mountains to go around out there, so let’s wish the team a happy and challenging 12 days.
