Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge, Plan B: Mint and Matanuska Glacier

AMS and CWVC crew re-fueled at headquarters after returning from Denali National Park where the Mckinley river, the gateway to Mt. Brooks, was at flood stage and uncrossable. The alternate route was a no-go as well, so a new plan has been hatched. Everyone is in good spirits and excited to be eating moose burgers again. The team departed this morning and we just received a Delorme inreach (tracking device) message saying they have arrived to Hatcher Pass and will embark to the Mint glacier soon. Hatcher Pass is a great recreational area near Palmer, AK. Can't really go wrong in Alaska, especially with the sunny days we continue to have into August!

Having a good time at AMS headquarters!
