No fly day, the waiting game...

I am at the Roadhouse, a classic Alaskan Guesthouse and bakery, and we are waiting to fly onto the glacier. It's too early for beers and too late for breakfast. The waiting game is excruciating because your are mentally preparing for a twenty day expedition but your just have to sit in civilian clothes , hurry up and wait!

Anyway here is a link to a film by Black Diamond Athletes, Jesse Huey and Mark Westman. I shots some portraits of them on the mountain as they got to our camp to recuperate. Enjoy Jesse and Mark climbing the Slovak Route on Denali. Its business time. Thanks for the photo credits BD!
