The day was perfect for a long hike, mostly sunny skies and visibility almost endless. Drove up to Hatcher Pass then over to Willow Creek Valley where I started the climb up. This time, unlike last when it was foggy as all get-out, I could see the whole ridge from where I parked. It took me about an hour to make the switch-back climb up to about 5000 FT. Once on top, wow, and wow is just about all I can say. If only my photos could portray what I could really see. The photos just don’t show the awe inspiring views from atop. I had on idea that Denali could be seen so easily from there.
Denali – “The High One”
Back at Hatcher Pass – Summit Lake
Me and the boys.
A few more photos to come, as usual.
