Grounded In Talkeetna

We got up this morning at 6:00 am and had an early breakfast. Then we got our gear loaded up and headed to Alpine Ascents’ office where we had gear check, picked up our group food and practiced knots and rope climbing.

After that we had our meeting with the park Rangers and paid our park fees.

Unfortunately we are now grounded in Talkeetna. Fog rolled in onto base camp in the afternoon and all the flights ended up being cancelled. So our plan is to have dinner and beers in a local dive and spend the night here in Talkeetna again. We’ll be back up at 8:00 am tomorrow morning and hope things improve so we can get in to base camp.

Bummer.
