2 Denali Summits!


Hewette just called me from the summit. He made it up there with the rest of his folks. And just as I asked him about Tom Torkelson he handed the phone off to Tork. Tork made it up with the rest of his crew as well.

They were on the top at 6:00 pm. Tim said it was rather windy in the morning, but that he was hanging out in his fleece glove liners. It was an awesome summit day. And judging by the webcam it looks like they are going to have great weather for their descent too.

Tim said that he definitely wished that Adam and Ross were with them. Adam, I relayed your message to Tim.

Here's a photo of one of the many views you get from the summit.
And here's a video from the summit by the one and only Colby Coombs.
