Hello and welcome to the expedition blog for our June 12th Team. The team will assemble beginning on June 12th in Anchorage for a gear check, team meeting, and make any last purchases that are necessary. The following day they will drive up to the sleepy little town of Talkeetna, where they will be given an orientation by the Rangers at the National Park Service office, and then (weather permitting), board a small plane and fly from the lush green forest, to white in all directions: to Base Cam on the Kahiltna glacier, the starting point for all Denali expeditions.
Let’s meet the team:
Our guides on this expedition are: Kevin Koprek of Ouray, Colorado, Caitlin Hague of Girdwood, Alaska, and Karen Kingsley of Ophir, Colorado.
