Days 21-22: Scouting out terrain
Happy Summer Solstice, everyone! Today, we will experience 24 hours of daylight here in Alaska.
The past few days have been devoted to exploration. Whenever Sean and I arrive in a new place, it takes a few days to get acquainted with the land. We’ve spent our time traveling down to Seward, saw the warf and had some Huckleberry ice-cream, and then yesterday took a 2-hour hike in the Chugach State Park, scouting out lines for today. Now we’re off with our heavy packs and skis/splitboard to get some AK snow.
While we get after it, please enjoy these pics from the last few days…
