A posse of AMS'ers on the tippy top

AMS team on the summit of Denali.
I just heard from AMS guide Tom Torkelson.  He was up on the summit with a whole bunch of AMS climbers.  Postle's team and Colby's team were up there too.   They were the only ones on the top. 

Tom said that the weather today was as good as it gets.  There was no wind at all nor were there any clouds.  None of them even had any puffy insulating layers on at 8:00 PM.  Those are the summit days we all hope for!
This is just one of the amazing views you get on a clear day.  Looking South South East at the French Ridge of Mount Huntington.
