Approaching Denali – Part III



As we broke through the clouds the fear of not seeing the summit were erased. Even more vast than forest below, the sea of clouds stretched across the horizon. We were alone in the sky with the summits of Mt. Foraker, Hunter, and McKinley. The otter’s engine drowned out the sound of voices as it struggled to gain altitude. I had to share this moment with someone. I looked back, but Shauna was busy making this image, all I could do was turn to Richard and say…”This is so F#@%ing awesome!” I’m pretty sure he read my lips because he grinned and gave me a thumbs up. We continued to circle in this sea of clouds as we approached the island in the sky…..
