News from Denali!

Got a couple calls this morning... first one from Talkeetna Air Taxi letting us know that Postle and crew are in basecamp and awaiting a flight. Should be back at AMS around 10:30-11:30. We have a little watermelon to wet their parched, dry, sunbaked lips when they arrive. This team did an amazing job and still managed to come back a few days early. Yeah!

The second call came from Nate Opp and Mike Janes. They're setting a cache at 10,200 feet and then heading back down to 7,800 feet for tonight. Everyone is doing well and enjoying the gorgeous weather!

Third call came from Kirby Senden on Melis and the Kahn's trip. We couldn't understand everything from the message but got that they tried for the summit yesterday and were turned down due to weather. They're currently at high camp, 17,000 feet, and are hoping to try again for the summit today.

That's all for now. We'll keep ya posted AMS style!
