Archangel Valley

Hoping that Hatcher Pass or Archangel Valley Rd. would be open by now I grabbed the dogs and headed on up. To my dismay the gate was closed on the entrance to Archangel Valley Rd. so I continued up to Hatcher Pass knowing full well the Pass would still be closed also. It was. I drove back down and stopped at one of the many pull-offs to check out the Little Su River. As I was about to get back into the Jeep and head home, a grater drove by heading down. I thought to myself, hmm, I wonder. I loaded the dogs back up and headed back up just to see if by chance one of the roads had just been opened. Slowing down, peeking in, and Yay, Archangel had just been opened. I wiped the Jeep around and headed down/up Archangel Valley.

The weather was kind of hit and miss with bits of sun and rain.
