Fall is beautiful and underrated in Alaska. Maybe because for outsiders it can be so hard to hit it just right. Fall is known for unpredictable weather and a short time frame for colorful leaves. Some years it rains during that whole window. Other years we get an Indian Summer.

Looking Back

Due to a miscommunication during my talk with the backpackers i had aimed for the wrong notch. We came in at the low saddle along the ridge towards the right. The ridge climb wore me out so i wasn't happy about having to climb over three more knobs or rock. We did finally come back to the trail and i could see that it does indeed exist and goes down into the valley. As i thought, it goes down much too steeply and much too early.
