Back to Civilization

| June 11, 2009

Last night I got the happy phone call directly from Andrew’s cell phone.   They are back in civilization!   They had a small window to get to the summit and back before the weather was going to change and they pushed and got it done and got back down safe and sound.   I am eagerly awaiting hearing about the trip, seeing photos and hearing about the weather.    The Sultana ridge is a very exposed spot- it gets weather from the north and the south.   There is no real weather indicators other than their barometers – which I assume they were using and getting updates from the north (Denali recreation forecast) and the south (Talkeetna).  But the distances are far and I’m sure that Denali creates it own weather.    In any case, they are down and out.     So the next post will probably be from the man himself sometime early next week.   Even Mira recognizes that he was having fun out there – when we talk about where Daddy is – she says: skiing, wheee!    Polly
