12 Day Course

The 12 day Mountaineering Course remains on the Eldridge Glacier. Today, the weather was not good enough for the airplanes to fly into the mountains and pick them up on the glacier. For safety reasosns, planes must fly under Visusal Flight Rules (VFR) in the Alaska Range.  They are doing well and are setttled into their basecamp, eating, drinking, and awaiting better weather.

Here's hoping for clear skies and flying airplanes tomorrow!!!
