      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Alaska, from Above and Below - 5/11/2008

Recommended Posts

Trip: Alaska, from Above and Below -

 

Date: 5/11/2008

 

Trip Report:

Alaska, with its expressive, endless light, mercurial weather, raw landscapes, and frenetic springs, can seem like an alien world full of accidental, often abstract art forms. Whether viewed through the omniscience of an aircraft window or the intimacy of a macro lens, it is a place which never fails to stun any visitor with open eyes and a willing mind.

Nice shots - I always say that i am going to take some time after a climb and see other parts of the park. In 5 seasons in the range I have yet to do it.
