I’m playing a little catch-up with the posts. Adventures have been pretty non-stop it seems.
First up, the first “exploratory” hike of the year. Went for a hike up in Hatcher Pass, it ended up being a lot rougher than we expected. Trudging through sections of snow up to our thighs made our skin brittle. The brittleness and the snapping of bear brush (alders) left many small scratches and cuts all over our legs. It was a brutal hike for being so short; but, informative!
