Alaska Seminar: Waiting for a Weather Window

There was about two feet of new snow last night at Kahiltna Base Camp.  It is currently snowing and visibility is low.  We are in standby mode and playing cards with our one set of 48 cards. 

It turns out the little snow storm from yesterday is lasting into today. We are waiting for some clear weather and our flight off the glacier. The thunderous vibrations of avalanches somewhere off into the thick clouds are pretty cool canceling out the wind and the snow battering the tent. Everyone has had a great time, but most are ready for some beers.

Signing out from the land of positive vibrations.
