First Hike of the Summer

Drove up into the Hatcher Pass area to see if Archangel Rd. was opened up yet, and damn if it was. Made a b-line to the end, turned around, parked, grabbed my stuff and headed off for a short hike. I wasn’t prepared for anything longer then a couple miles. Followed a path, lost the path, crossed a couple creeks, one almost falling in and cutting the hike short, found the path again and off I went. All I can say is, damn it was nice to get out again, no one around but me, a couple Marmots and a bunch of birds. Oh, and the peace of being alone with nature. Fred Bear, I could hear your foot steps.

Some of the photos from today.
