Today was the day. We met Lonnie with big hugs, high fives and lots of cheers upon our landing at basecamp. With high energy and excitement we tried to take in the beautiful day and dramatic atmosphere Denali granted us.
Dupre enjoyed a fresh Talkeetna Roadhouse salad, macaroons from Hear in America and a Denali Brewery IPA on the plane ride back.
Before Lonnie was allowed to thaw too much, he showered, shaved and finally got to change into some fresh clothes after twenty-nine days on Denali.
The coming days will be mostly relaxing by the fireside, mulled wine and plenty of story sharing.
Stay tuned as we update with photo and video from the Denali climb this year.
