Thunderbird falls gushes out of the Chugach Mountains, surging through the tiny channel carved in the mountain side.
Valdez lingers on the other side of Thompson pass, beside the Valdez port and backed by glacial slues and mountain peaks.
Get down on your hands and knees, dig for the razor claims that bury themselves into the wet sand when the tide is out.
At an elevation of 1,300 feet in the Chugach National Forest Juneau Lake Cabin is one of the first rustic cabins on the Resurrection Pass Trail.
You begin your adventure on the McCarthy Road by driving through the tunnel through the mountain.
The blue water of the lake stretches to the feet of the mountains here on the Kenai Peninsula.
In my opinion, this is one of the best camping and ATVing spots on the Glenn.
We have been tricked. The weather seems to have snuggled closer to winter.
