This was taken at about 6500′ during the month of May in the Chugach Mountains. I was on a mission to drop off supplies and pick somebody up. These high glacier views are by far the most surreal thing I have ever seen. The ice clings to the rocks so precariously that it’s scary to look at, as if the added pressure of your gazing eyeballs might accidentally knock something off the mountain. It’s terrifying but I love it.
Does anybody want to experience this? I can put you in here with an experienced guide during the warm(er) summer months and it’s AWESOME! I’m talking about you city folk who like adventure. If anybody would like to spend a couple of days amid breathtaking glacial landscapes on the high glacier you should give me a call. We have guides who would love to spend a few days showing you around this area. You could do some unique stuff like digging a huge snow cave, practicing crevasse rescue, or climbing one of the numerous surrounding peaks. This can all be done safely in an area that is totally remote and away from other people and human impact. This could be an awesome opportunity to do something totally unique and adventurous. If you are interested you can contact me here. Let me know how long you want to stay, we will provide everything except personal clothing.
FYI — When I say, “dig a snow cave” I’m not talking about those pansy little things you used to dig as a kid in the drive way. I’m talking about something that would make your Momma proud. Something the whole gang can hang out in and play cards and cook meals. You can make a snow cave comfortable when there is 12-20 feet of compacted snow beneath your feet.
