Mt. McKinley: Knoff & Team March Up Ski Hill

Hello to all from the June 19 Denali expedition.  If the saying “make hay while the sun shines” applies to mountaineering, this team could feed a lot of cows.

I am thrilled with our team dynamic and progress. Yesterday we ate breakfast, got ready and were blessed with clear conditions at base camp.  K2 Aviation worked hard to get us all on the glacier which allowed us to pack up and move out.  We arrived at the base of Ski Hill by dinner.

Today we woke to perfect weather and the team again showed great enthusiasm to get moving.  By 6:45 a.m. we were marching up Ski Hill with full loads.  We arrived at 9,800 feet by 11:30 and are now enjoying a steamy afternoon sun bathing.  Stay tuned for tomorrow’s next episode.  This is Adam Knoff signing off.

Okay, well apparently besides humans, Ice Worms are the only organism to survive on Denali at the highest elevations.  Be sure to leave them there when you come home.  Yuck!  I have never thought of you as a “worm”  but if the shoe fits…I love you, my little “Ice Worm.”  They can survive better than humans, so just go up and then make the more important half of the trip…coming home safe and sound.
