May 20 Denali – Base Camp call

Joe Butler called in a post that was unfortunately cut off a bit short.  Satellite transmissions from such a northern latitude can be tricky…

The team spent today reviewing skills at Base Camp.  They finished rigging their packs and sleds for the journey up the Kahiltna Glacier, which will start in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow.

Denali base campBase Camp can be a bustling place when the weather is clear and the planes are flying.  It has the nickname of “Kahiltna International Airport,” although it is unclear if a plane has actually landed from Canada.

Here’s Joe!
