It took a while to trim down an amazing week of training on the Eagle Glacier to just 25 photos! Why 25 photos? Because I think 25 was the average training hours each girl put in this week. The second half of our NAWTA women’s training camp was fantastic, and we all put in some really good quality training.
We took a helicopter up to the Thomas Training Center building, which is right on the edge of Eagle Glacier and run by APU staff. They do a fantastic job keeping the place clean and running smoothly, with extremely well groomed trails!

I was planning on going camping with a few of the girls after we got down from the Glacier, but woke up with a cold this morning and decided to fly home in order to rest and not spread it. That’ll happen after a big training camp…as soon as my body sensed I was going to give it a rest, it decided to completely shut down on me. So tonight I’m catching a redeye back to Minnesota and my family. Thanks Alaska, you’ve been good to me, but it’ll be good to be home for a little while now!
