Seem to recall you like climbing mountains, so I thought I'd post a picture of this one...

We were flying at approx 20,000ft asl, but obviously not agl. :)

What a very pretty picture.
Has the mountain got a name?

Denali from the southeast? Nice shot.

Very nice.

I can see why you're Joe's favorite Republican. ;)

Some of my gear is in a cravasse just to the right in that photo.

Would that be Foraker on the left?

Thanks, Brian.. that's pretty cool.

Denali in February? Blech!

Anyone ever read Minus 148 (http://www.amazon.com/Minus-148-Degrees-Winter-McKinley/dp/0898866871/sr=8-1/qid=1171596105/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-7416555-1648966?ie=UTF8&s=books)?

A very good read -- but does not sound like a fun trip.

ljb5,

Wanna know scary?

I actually thought about you when I took the pictures, thinking you might like'em! ;)

On the trip south, I'll be busy drinking. :D

Nice photos Brian. So, what time of day was that? Interesting that there isn't more distortion behind the jet.

I know a few who have climbed Denali. One, at 71.5 years old, had the record for a while as the oldest dude to summit.

How does one make their initial approach to the site before starting the actual climb? Bush plane/Helicopter? Doesn't look like someplace you'd just "hike in"...

Usually a small plane from Talkeetna. I think it lands on skiis on the glacier.
