This is a great spot deep in the Talkeetna Moutains. You can see the type of hiking terrain surrounding this area, it is limitless. Only 100 yards from this position runs a bluish-green glacial stream on a bed of white sand. The elevation here is about 5000′ so the only vegetation standing in your way won’t get past your shins. Caribou frequent this area, and can be viewed almost everyday of the summer as they run through. A medium sized glacier tumbles out of the mountains up valley from the landing strip and wildflowers are poking up all around. We can even even coordinate hiking/rafting trips from this location down to Talkeetna. If you would like to get into the Alaskan wilderness this is a great option and you can read more at my wife’s website BackPackAK.com. In fact it’s Samantha’s 29th birthday today, and all she wants is for everyone who reads this post to schedule a backpacking trip :o) Gotta go, we’re headed out for her birthday dinner.
