Bella and I tried this loop solo last year. A nagging injury turned me around, and I really wanted to give it a try this summer. I was psyched that Jonathan was game, for the company, the lighter pack, and because sharing adventures is pretty fun.
After Saturday night dinner, we watched a black bear with two tiny cubs walk up the valley below us, and then about a minute later a rainbow arcing over the ridgeline came out. Not too shabby, Alaska, not too shabby. Photo by K. Strong.
