"Mount Hunter is a siren. Its seductive song captivated me the first time I heard it. I have thrown aside logic and maybe even reason to try to climb it. I am not alone on this bewitchment" Scott Backes

In Talkeetna & ready for the off!

We arrived in Talkeetna yesterday having left a dreary overcast Anchorage, and were greeted by a glorious sunny afternoon. Amazing views across the Talkeetna river into the Alaska Range with Mt Foraker, Mt Hunter, Denali, and the Mooses Tooth dominating the horizon. We had a minor panic after out transfer bus drove off back towards Anchorage with our food supplies for the next three weeks onboard...

Beautiful crisp and sunny start this morning and hopefully we should be flying into the mountains within the next hour! We're all really excited and can't wait to get climbing.
