The May 18 Denali Team is at basecamp! They were delayed one day by weather, but are happy to be on the glacier tonight and ready to start climbing tomorrow! The flight from the village of Talkeetna to basecamp on the Kahiltna Glacier is about 45 minutes and one of the most beautiful mountain flights anywhere, but they can only fly with good visibility. The team set up camp for the night and are making last minute preparations before heading up the Kahiltna glacier towards camp 1 tomorrow.
