Photos from Mountaineering Course

Some local folks had the opportunity to ride on the Otter that went in to pick up Melis, Beth, Robert, Brad, Kris & Elias yesterday. Here are some views en route from Talkeetna to the Kahiltna SE Fork (Base Camp). Thanks to Randi for these photos.

It was a little hazy, with that famous "patchy morning fog" we've been hearing about in the forecast lately...

Picking up the team...

Gazing at the White Wonderous Alaska Range over the Otter nose...

And the moment you've been waiting for: Kris's face-off with the famed "Seward's Folly" burger at the West Rib Pub!
Before...

During...
"Mmm, dis is dlishish"
(It's the Fat Ass Sauce)

After...
He almost did it! It took a while, but there was not much left! He even ate most of the 1 lb of fries! There were many spectators cheering him on.
Melis asked him, "Which was harder, this or any of the peaks we climbed?"
"THIS!" he said, noting that he's ready for more mountaineering!!
We look forward to seeing all these course members here at AMS in the future!
Cheers,
~Julia
