Elevation: 346'

Yesterday was spent at K2 Aviation’s hangar, putting the finishing touches on our packing and preparing.  The weather is beautiful herein Talkeetna, and we fully expect to be able to fly into the Alaska Range today.  Hopefully the next time we touch base will be from the Kahiltna Glacier.
