Heading into the Mountains

Off to the Alaska Range tomorrow!  I'm teaching a 12-day mountaineering course with ascents of numerous small peaks in the area.  I've spent the last week or so around Anchorage so I'm really looking forward getting into the mountains.  Mountains are good for the soul.  I should be back on May 30--as long as the weather cooperates for us to fly back out.  

Here are a couple of interesting links for the Alaska Range:

The company I work for, Mountain Trip, maintains blogs for all the trips.  I use a sat phone to call into the office every evening. The blog at should be up and running tomorrow.  Click on the May 19 Course.

Also, the flight company, TAT, has a webcam to show you what the weather looks like in the Alaska Range at
