Affinity on Mount McKinley
relationship between the climbers and their glacier pilots are close in Alaska.
Whether it is a joyous moment of celebration when the climbers reach the summit
and the pilots fly by, all waving to each other, or when the pilots bring home
the body bags, with everyone silent, the pilots of Denali are just like the
rest of us. They have sorrowful moments and joyous occasions as well, but one
thing is for sure. Those glacial gladiators love their jobs more than most.
