Denali Expedition: Smith & Team Arrive in Anchorage, Transfer to Talkeetna

Sundy, June 2, 2024 - 10:20 pm PT

Hello readers!

Welcome to RMI's Denali Expedition #5. Today is day 1 of our expedition. The team traveled from near and far to get to Anchorage. Quick introductions and a brief run down over the gear list and we were out the door and piled into a van for our drive to Talkeetna. Before arriving to Talkeetna we made a pitstop in Wasilla to purchase fresh food items like cheese, meats and breads to enjoy on the mountain. We off loaded all our duffels in the airplane hanger for tomorrow's gear check and packing, then made our way to the hotel. Tonight was informal to allow people time to relax or unwind before a busy day tomorrow. Some of the team made their way down to the river and man was it a view. The mountains were out in all their glory. Denali looks so huge, even from a far. What a good start to our trip to have such a spectacular view. As for now we are going to enjoy being in civilization and sleeping in beds. Tomorrow will be a busy day of prepping so we can (fingers crossed) fly onto the glacier on Tuesday. 

Goodnight readers,

RMI Guide Hannah Smith and Team

This message is for Meganne Harvey. One of Mackenzie’s shit kids dropped an ice cube down my back today, and I realized quickly this is probably your life 24/7. Anyway you are very missed and I’m sending all the vibes to the team
