Thinking about fellow mountain climber Andy Sterns, who got seriously injured recently during a climbing accident on Mt. Osborn in the Kigluaik Mountains near Nome. His climbing partner, Ian McRae pictured here during one of our climbs in the Kigluaiks, was able to lower Andy down the mountain and keep him alive through the night until Search and Rescue Personnel from Nome arrived the next day. After being in critical condition at Alaska Regional Hospital, Andy was moved a couple of days ago to St. Elias Speciality Hospital. Keep climbing, Andy, and see you at the summit!
