The sun not yet setting behind the Alaska Range - 11:30 pm, June 20
It is the longest day of the year....or the shortest night. And, it is gorgeous. After not seeing the mountains for over a week it sure was nice to see the Great One last night. Here at the AMS headquarters we've got gear checking for a West Buttress trip that departs this afternoon, a Denali Skills Workshop for a group of Czechs and guides prepping for an Advanced Mountaineering Course starting on Wednesday. It's busy!
