Alaska Seminar: Davis and Team work on Glacier Travel

May 20, 2014 - 11:57pm PT

Today was a glorious day full of sun and cooler temperatures. We left camp early this morning and headed west, down to the main flow of the Kahiltna glacier. The team got first hand experience of how we move across such massive fields of ice and the views both up and down glacier were amazing. Felt like we were in the middle of the middle of nowhere. Our objective was a small formation called the pizza wedge and as we got closer the crevasses got bigger. So big that our desired approach was cut off by a 200’ wide crack over a mile long. Despite being rewarded with great weather and cooler temps, this years snow isn’t making things easy. So we trekked back to camp and resumed training for a full day tomorrow of crevasse rescue and beacon searches.

All is well and beautiful here!
