AMS guides Jake and Sammie return with students this weekend after an extended stay in the Coffee glacier with lots of different kinds of weather and great learning opportunities. The team arrived back to town Saturday evening the 16th, with a couple day delay flight in and out. Flying in and out of the Alaska Range it is common to get delayed, as the planes and pilots are typically flying on Visual Reference only. For some, the more time in the Alaska Range, the better. September is an awesome time to experience the changing of seasons back to winter.
Big thanks to Sammie Ellsworth for the photos of the spectacular Coffee Glacier!
