>>> Whilst in the Denali National Park (13/06/2008), on a sunny morning I sat waiting for the “green bus” which takes people into the park (rather than having hundreds of cars polluting and causing havoc on the "roads "). It was while I was quietly waiting for the bus that I recognized a man I had seen on the bus the day before. Remarkably, I found myself talking to him about his sucess at reaching the summit of The Mountain.
The previous day when first I had noticed him, he had hailed the bus at a remote section of the park, he then climbed aboard, looked into the interior, then appeared confused, then turned and left the bus again. His confusion came from his mind trying to decide what was normal and expected as opposed to his survival instincts of the previous weeks on the mountain. It was all too soon for him. At this first encounter his eyes, lips and overall appearance were that of a man who had come in from the wild and from our brief encounter I discovered that is exactly where he had been. I really felt privileged and would like to have had more time with him, however the bus came and he merged into my never-to-forget encounters.

Note
He also told me of his involvement in the rescue of a fallen climber and how it delayed his attempt until the rescue had been successfully achieved!
