AAI guide Angela Henderson called in earlier today with the first dispatch for Team 6.

Team 6 drove into Talkeetna earlier today, hoping to get a chance to fly onto the mountain today,though the weather looked uncertain throughout the day. Unfortunately a weather window did not open up, so the team is in Talkeetna for the evening and hopeful of flying on the mountain tomorrow.

We're looking forward to hearing from Team 6 from the mountain, soon!
