Part of a long day in the Chugash

Heavy snow year kept it lingering well past usual. A slog with lots of post-holing during a long day hitting several trails in the Chugash.

Nice early fall hike  Sucess!

Early October hike. Started in mild weather, hiked through rain, and summited in a snow storm.

Nice training hike  Sucess!

Like this hike for training with a heavy pack. I prefer to access from Basher.

Wolverine  Sucess!

Really lovely hike on a mild March day. Denali was out! The trails were shear ice.

great inversion left alpenglow views of Denali, sub zero temps but one of the best runs of the winter.

Foggy Ascent   Sucess!

Took a quick turn up Wolverine. Hiked right up into a cloud. Felt like we were hiking the Scottish Highlands!

Great hike/trail run  Sucess!

Hiked/ran this as training for a marathon I did in late June. Great for a night hike!

Worlverine Peak summit  Sucess!

I've climbed it from Prospect Heights various times and enjoy it as a mega tough mountain run. I also have summited the peak from the Williwaw Lakes and via the long ridgeline from Mt. Elliott. My favorite time was a cold New Year's Day. Brian Griggs and I started under a bright moon (no headlamp needed) at 3am.

Great rainy day run  Sucess!

Had a great run with some fit AK women from Prospect Heights TH. Moose and Dall sheep rounded out the experience.

Great hike  Sucess!

Started from Prospect hieghts and made the trek via the traditional route. Almost called the trip off because of a rainstorm moving in, but I was glad I didn't because I was rewarded with one of my favorite views ever one I reached the top. Saw Anchorage behind me covered with rainclouds while the setting sun burned an orange glow right through the rain. Amazing. Been up two or three times since and enjoyed it every time.

Beautiful View, crazy bugs  Sucess!

Nice day to be out here, no clouds in the sky whatsoever. The bugs, on the other hand....

Snack time!  Sucess!

A great day of chasing little rodents.
Seems like everything is big in Alaska except the marmots.
I don't get it.

Prospect Heights  Sucess!

A nice outing, day-hike. Good to get out again and stretch the legs after Denali. Went up with Haliku and others.

Prospect Heights  Sucess!

With extra time in Anchorage after our Denali success we killed half a day doing a little hiking. A very nice outing on a sunny day.

Route: Prospect Heights-Up the valley-Up to the ridgeline after Rusty Point  Sucess!

I live up on Nearpoint, and my friend Seth that took me grew up in these mountains, so he knew about a trail that connected into the Prospect Heights Trail. There was quite a bit of snow, but it had been pretty cold for most of this winter at that point, so it was pretty packed and windblown into the valley. Once we got just passed Rusty Point in the valley, we headed up to the ridgeline. It was about 6-7 degrees in the valley, then once we got on that straight shot that connects to the ridge that Wolverine is in, the temps dropped to about 4-5 degrees. The day was awesome, though. Clear and sunny, and we headed back just in time to catch the sunset over the inlet. Great hike. We plan on doing Wiliwaw Peak in May, and we are going to head to Wolverine then straight back to Wiliwaw.

Prospect Heights to Wolverine Peak  Sucess!

Started out at 7am. Summited 3.5 hours later. Great climb, nothing technical. Freeze line was at 4,000ft so the last 500ft was in light snow. Vis was terrible for looking around at the surrounding peaks but the beauty of nothing but rock and ice was fantastic. Plenty of Moose and a old plane wreck to look at.

Great Trail to the top!

and wondeful views of the surrounding peaks and Anchorage below. Sept, 2006
