Lonnie Dupre, polar explorer, will be first to attempt a solo ascent of Denali in month of January.
I met with Lonnie and Stevie at Seattle airport where the three of us flew into Anchorage. Our base of operation is Talkeetna, hundred miles north of Anchorage and at the edge of Denali park.
As soon as weather permits, Lonnie will be flown to Kahiltna glacier at base of the mountain. Once he begins his journey, daily updates will be posted to his site.
This has been my first week in Alaska.
