Yow! What a great ride that was! Kip Garre, Fred Marmsater, Courtney Phillips and I ended up skiing off the tippy-top of Mt. Foraker (aka Sultana) in the Alaska Mountain Range on Monday morning, June 2nd. We prepaid for our four-day window of good weather with two weeks of sitting in the tents in a crevasse riddled camp while we played Scrabble, read books and drank grit-infused water. It was painful at times, but all of that has been forgotten now and the whole thing was an excellent adventure. A big hug and thanks to Polly for posting update while we were gone.
I’m swapping over to a new photo management program (Adobe Lightroom), so my photo editing and posting is a bit behind the curve, however I promise photos and a trip report or two, or three will be forthcoming. In the meantime, I also shot a lot of video, including this little clip of sitting in the tent, on a glacier…. in the rain.
