Saddlebag Glacier Trail

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! board path beyond

The trail ends at a small rock beach and Saddlebag Glacier Lake! Saddlebag Glacier Lake

 

Far across the lake you can see where the glacier barley peeking between a mountain pass. glacier peeking

 

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! angel on mt

 

I met a wild-haired man on the trail;  he looked hungry so I shared my lunch with him! wild man of the lake!

 

The apple was imported from Washington state.   The salmon?  A friend and I caught it last summer on the Eyak River ! lunch at the lake
