Lonnie Dupre is in a holding pattern. The Minnesota adventurer is in Alaska waiting to fly to the beginning of his one month solo Denali trip up Mt. McKinley where winds regularly exceed 100 mph.
“Good afternoon from overcast Talkeetna! We are in a holding pattern due to high winds that you can see in this NOAA chart. In order to safely land on Kahiltna glacier where the base camp is located at 7200ft, we need the wind to be below 20mph or so.” via One World Endeavors.
