1. Denali Summer Solstice


    from John Schwieder Added 13 0 0

    My idea with this video is to show what the longest day of summer looks like in central Alaska, the land of the midnight sun! The location is Reflection Pond near Wonder Lake on the north side of Denali (also known as Mt. McKinley). The video start with the summit obscured in clouds. As the clouds dissipate the whole mountain is revealed. Sunlight fades into dusk but it never really gets dark. Dusk transitions to the blue light of dawn, then sunlight returns to Denali, touching the peak before descending. On summer solstice the sun in only below the horizon for three hours and twenty-four minutes! Of course, winter is a different story...

              An incredible September evening in South Central Alaska. Was able to see Denali all the way from Anchorage. Flew out to check a couple cabins to make sure there were no bears that broke into them before winter arrives.

                  • Jeremy Jones Takes a Little Trip to Denali . . . To "Train" for Nepal - Higher Unplugged Episode 8


                    from Teton Gravity Research Added 1,887 3 0

                    ​For the largest descent of his life, Jeremy Jones abandoned the iconic in search of the obscure. Rather than making a descent of Mt. Everest, he selected a nearby peak in Nepal, which he dubbed theShangri-La Spine Wall. With a summit that towered 21,400 feet above sea level, the only certainty the mountain offered was the challenge inherent in attempting to scale it. In addition to its high elevation, the Shangri-La Spine Wall afforded weather that changed rapidly and a dearth of information about its snowpack. To train for his mission to Nepal, Jones teamed up with Conrad Anker, a climber and mountaineer who largely built his reputation around ascents in the Himalaya. Last June, Jones and Anker traveled to Alaska to summit Denali, the highest peak in North America. As Jones explains, “I went to see how I would handle the high elevation.” With a summit elevation of 20,322 feet, Denali provided Jones with a glimpse of what awaited him in Nepal. And just as he had anticipated, the trip revealed that climbing—let alone snowboarding—the Shangri-La Spine Wall would be no easy task.

                      Finally was able to make it into to Talkeetna and do a glacier landing flight, on North Americas tallest mountain... Mt. McKinley. We were able to circle the entire mountain, and land at the Don Sheldon Amphitheater on the Ruth Glacier. One of the most serene places I have ever been to! Thank you K2 Aviation! Places like this is why I live in Alaska! Filmed entirley with a GoPro Hero 3.
