Mt. McKinley: Dave Hahn & Team Arrive in Talkeetna

June 24, 2015 12:35 am PST The final RMI Denali team of 2015 came together today. Six climbers and three guides met up in Anchorage this afternoon, some having come in one or two days previously and some just arriving today after exceedingly long airline extravaganzas. Luckily, the all-important mountain of baggage that will allow us to safely challenge the real mountain made it onto the Anchorage carousels intact. We didn't waste much time at all before boarding our Denali Overland shuttle for Talkeetna. It was a warm and dry day, as has apparently been the pattern in these parts this season. Haze obscured the views we might otherwise have enjoyed of the Alaska Range. Our journey to Talkeetna was broken up by a stop at the big supermarkets of Wasilla to put finishing touches on group and personal food supplies for the trip. We made good time up through the fresh forest fire scars of Willow, AK that have been making national news in recent weeks and rolled into Talkeetna around 8 PM. It didn't take long before we were settled into our comfortable hotel and venturing out together for a relaxing beverage while basking in the strong evening sunshine. Tomorrow we'll get down to the business of climbing North America's highest mountain. Best Regards, RMI Guide Dave Hahn & Team

Hi Dave -

Just read on your Facebook page about the earthquake up there.  Unbelievable. Hope you and the crew have safe climbing days ahead of you.  Good Luck !
