Hayes Range: Waiting on Weather

Matt Klick and I are waiting on weather to fly into the Hayes Range with Wing Air. We hoped to fly yesterday morning, but intermittent bad weather has kept us from getting out of Fairbanks thus far. We are planning to make an attempt to get in this afternoon, and have been watching the FAA weather cams and radar a lot the last couple days. We are hoping to land at a gravel strip near the base of the North/Northwest ridge of Mount Hayes after dropping some food up in the basin so that we can lighten our loads for the walk. From the gravel strip, it should be around 7 miles to our proposed base camp near Mounts Hayes, Balchen, and Geist. Wish us luck...
