LS.0012-00View of Mt.Foraker 17,400ft from W. Buttress of Denali. The 14,000ft camp on Denali is lower left in picture. On warm summer days when there is big high pressure north of the Alaska Range it pushes warm air up & over the mountains. As the air rises over tundra it forms a band of low to mid altitude clouds that tend to dissipate as they move down from range.
LS.0013-00Climber cooking dinner at Browne Tower (14,600ft) on the Karstens Ridge of Denali during a traverse from the Kahiltna Glacier to Wonder Lake. The South (main) summit is in sun light (top left of picture) and the North Summit is in shade (top right). The Harper Glacier flows down between the two summits.
LS.0014-00View of the lower Harper Glacier from Browne Tower at the top of the Karstens ridge on Denali. The Muldrow Glacier and the Harper Glacier form the easiest route on the north side of Denali. The crux of that route is the Karstens ridge. Alaska.
