Posting from Talkeetna, AK

I'm in Alaska, getting ready to guide my first Denali trip with Alpine Ascents. Spent the day helping another AAI team prepare for their trip: packing, weighing gear, driving the van, arranging air taxi to basecamp, the works. We've just arrived at Talkeetna Air Taxi (TAT) and are making final preparations for them to fly onto the glacier this afternoon. Fun stuff!

It's nice up here, overcast but not cold - lots of mosquitoes though. >:-b There was an earthquake earlier this morning - felt it rumble under our feet - guess it set off a bunch of avalanches up on the mountain - yikes! My trip leaves on Wednesday - can't wait!

Plane looks like what we used to call a siulik (Iñupiaq for Northern pike).
