Off to Denali
Early tomorrow, May 28, I fly to Alaska where I'll, once again, be a volunteer on the snowy slopes of Denali (www.nps.gov/dena/). The work: Hang out at base camp near 7000 feet elevation on the Kahiltna Glacier in case a climber needs wilderness medicine and/or rescue. I will be hanging out with Daryl Miller, the ranger who has made more contributions to mountain search and rescue than any other person, living or dead. With no access to the wonders of blogging, it will be about three weeks before you see from me. In the meantime, stay well.
