June 24 Denali Team – Final Dispatch

Back in the big city after a couple weeks in the Alaska Range, the June 24 Denali team is enjoying their first hot showers, internet and flush toilets!

We left our 14,200′-camp at 9 p.m. and hiked through nearly two feet of fresh snow on the way down to Camp 2 at 11,200′.

After a classic Alaskan midnight sunset, we headed down glacier and arrived at Base Camp at 8 a.m., greeted by the humming of airplane engines. We were so excited to be able to fly out so soon!

Denali taught our team a few lessons on this trip, but we’ll be back, more prepared next time to face the variety of challenges this mountain throws our way. A huge thanks the guide team for keeping everyone safe and well-fed on this trip, and as always, we’d like to thank our wonderful office team for providing all the support we need to pull off a trip of this magnitude. You guys are awesome! See ya next year,

June 24 Denali team
