These shots are from my first hike on Saddlebag Glacier Trail, a 3.1 mile trail in the Chugach National Forrest. In Cordova we measure everything by miles “out the road”. Saddlebag is roughly twenty-five miles out the road with the trailhead being one mile off the main road. The trail takes you meandering through rich vegetation with a glacial lake awaiting you at the end!
When I was a boy in Arkansas, I found myself laying in the pasture on many a summer day while imagining what I saw in the clouds. Now, in Alaska, the melting snow formations on the mountains provide ever changing displays for my still vivid imagination. Below, I see and angel blowing his trumpet!
