Postle

Postle just called again a few minutes ago. It was windy all day yesterday, but it was looking better last night and has mellowed out this morning. They were about 30 minutes from launching for high camp.

This photo was taken just a few days ago from 14, looking up at the summit of Denali. Those plumes of wind and snow are blowing several hundred feet into the air. That means you do not go for it when it looks even remotely like this.

Mark talked to Nate Opp this morning. It sounds like it is still windy way up high on the mountain, so the teams at 17K are hanging another day and hoping to try for the summit tomorrow.

From Talkeetna, it sure looks like a nice day in the range.
