I was thrilled to be able to go to Alaska for some extended backpacking! A good buddy of mine and myself spent 17 days backing and traveling throughout different parks in Alaska. From ridge trails and Denali National Park (formerly McKinley National Park) to Kennicot and Wrangel-St. Elias, we covered a lot of ground in a short time!
This photo is of a valley near the beginning of our hike on the Kesugi Ridge Trail! I love the deep greens and lush forest! Alaska offered some of the greenest and widest valleys that I have ever seen!
