This trip would not be possible without Julie Wolf, aka Julie Wolf, or occasionally JWolf. JWolf is our friend Alex's mother, and she often served as our surrogate mother in high school when our biological mothers weren't quite cutting it. Her passion for the outdoors is unparalleled (even by us), and as far as we can tell, she regularly wrassles bears during her leisure time. And she always wins.
JWolf was instrumental to this trip because after moving to Talkeetna, she convinced her friend Lisa Roderick (the base-camp manager on Denali) to put us on her crew for base-camp set-up. Without that offer, we likely would not have been able to afford the expensive flight to the glacier.
