My friends Matthew and Olga, amazing hosts. I went to college with Matthew, we played in the Wind Ensemble together. He is a lucky man, because his awesome Russian wife Olga is cool as hell, and one badass cook. Here we are hanging at the Susitna River in Talkeetna.
Mountains in the distance, one of which is Denali, too clouded to see. Talkeetna is the starting off point for people climbing Denali. From here they take small planes up to a glacier and base camp.
