Mt. McKinley: Mike Walter & Team at Basecamp

After summiting Denali on the 1st of July, our team has not stopped working. We descended from high camp yesterday morning, and continued to Camp 3 at 11,000’ for dinner and some shut-eye. The former was in full effect in the form of bacon-chicken quesadillas, and the latter was in short-order, as we woke up at midnight to start our descent to Basecamp. After taking advantage of the early morning frozen snow conditions on the lower Kahiltna glacier, we arrived at Basecamp at 8:30 am. Now it’s just a matter of waiting for better weather to allow planes to fly and take us back to Talkeetna. We are all napping in our tents while we anticipate sunny skies.

Congratulations to all. 
We am so amazed and proud of all of you.
What an accomplishment. We are so relieved it was done without
incident.  Make me realize what a great guide Mike is . Thanks Mike
for taking care of everyone.  I bet you could sell a warm shower for
$500.00 to the group. Again Thanks Mike and hope it was the dream trip for all.
