Yesterday, Adam and Laura did their orientation at Talkeetna Ranger Station in Denali National Park. This is where you check in to begin your climb. You are required to bring a photo, all the necessary paper work and money. A ranger ensures you have read the Denali Mountaineering Guide which reviews search and rescue, clean climbing requirements, high altitude medical problems, glacier hazards and self sufficiency.
Today, Mother's Day, they will fly to Kahiltna Glacier to begin their adventure. It will be easy for me to remember the day!
