Bye Alex

Another guide heads south. Alex Stroud worked two Denali Expeditions, an Advanced Mountaineering Course and several workshops for us this year. He's headed to warm and sunny Montana and then in his own words he's "not sure where else..." Many of AMS field staff have mastered the free bird lifestyle!
Alex says goodbye and heads to the airport.

In the meantime, we have four more instructors arriving this week for our upcoming mountaineering courses. After 2 days of rainy weather, it is beautiful today in Talkeetna.

The 12 Day Mountaineering Course led by Forest and Noah is also enjoying the weather. Last night they were out climbing peaks at 11:00 pm to take advantage of the optimal snow conditions. Freezing temperatures = solid snow = more efficient climbing = no over heating. They are all well and having a great time.

Climbers are heading out of camp in the shaded area.
