I took this yesterday as I was crossing the Chugach Range at 9700′. I mentioned yesterday that the wind was blowing about 25 knots and you can see the snow kicking up off the ice in the picture above. This is the South Western Flank of Mt. Marcus Baker which is loaded with snow ice and horrible weather 12 months out of the year. Days like this are few and far between for this region. Every time I fly by I am impressed by it’s shear size and nastiness. This is a mere glimpse of the thousands of square miles of rock and ice found in the Chugach Range. I heart the Chugach.
