Matanuska Panorama

The upper reaches of the Matanuska River meets the Matanuska Glacier. They can be thought of as different forks that meet to create the main river. Very nice fall day and fantastic view. The lowland forests on the right are possibly growing on old abandoned parts of the glacier buried under soil and rock.

Lost Lake Panorama

Lost Lake might be better named Hidden Lake, as it hides in plain site above the highway for miles. It's a beautiful lake and camping on the peninsulas, which are old terminal moraines, is idyllic.

Copper River Headwaters

If you've ever seen "Copper River Salmon" on a restaurant menu or in a market then this may be where they were born. The headwaters of the Copper River originate in this valley and the valley to immediate west, with Mt. Blackburn towering in the distance at 16,390 feet.. Tanada Lake shimmers along the valley floor. Tanada Lake and Copper Lake were once the same lake, until a big alluvial fan developed in the middle. Now the lakes are separated by two miles and water from Tanada Lake has had to find another route into the Copper River.

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.

High rolling hills near the White Mountains are characteristic of the Top of the World Highway at the most northern border crossing between the United States and Canada. I arrived 20 minutes too late, due to the sights and roughness of the dirt road, and had to spend the night next to the border. This pictures was taken on a color slide in the early 2000's.
