Truly one of the finest hikes we've ever done was the Kasugi Ridge hike in Denali State Park which parallels the Alaska Range. The weather treated us very well, and we got good looks at Denali pretty much every day. It's a big goddamn mountain.
Glaciers, they're awesome, and we were there. This is a picture of two fools hanging out at the edge of the Harding Ice Field. Some day, probably not all that long from now, this will be a melty puddle. For now, it's an incredible sight.
