AC Denali Post 38: Back Home/Some of AC's Pictures

Sorry for the radio silence--we've been busy welcoming Anders back into cilvilian life!

We picked him up on Thursday morning at the Philly airport--he was tired but happy to be home.  We were treated to a fantastic slide show and also saw 45 minutes of stunning video from the climb.

We hung in DE for a couple of days and went and saw World War Z--what a movie!   Anyways, Anders is recovering from the challenges of the climb and getting back into swimming, biking and running here at the beach.

Here are some of his pics from the climb (we'll post a link to a slideshow soon):
