Mt. McKinley: Weather Keeps Team Walter in Talkeetna for Another Day

Good evening from Talkeetna. The weather didn’t cooperate with us today, and we were unable to fly in to Base Camp. The snow and clouds never lifted from the Kahiltna Glacier, making it impossible to fly planes into the Range.

We were all suited up and ready for show time this morning, but our plans got put on hold. We waited around all day, hoping that the weather would lift and let us begin this adventure. We have all spent countless hours training and preparing for, and dreaming of, this climb. And we’re all excited to see this adventure start and our dreams come to fruition. But we also know that this is a long expedition, and we must be patient. For now, we’ll enjoy the creature comforts of life for another night…a good dinner, a warm bed, and a hot shower.

We’ll touch base again tomorrow.
