The Storm
8 images; click to enlarge

Toward the end of our trip, we were caught in a major (albeit typical for Denali) storm. Visibility was nil, the wind was howling, and the snow was dumping. We had to take turns going out to dig out our tents, as otherwise we would be entombed in snow in a matter of a few hours. This frenetic digging continued day and night for a couple of days. We were beyond thrilled when the storm broke and we were able to emerge from our tents.
