Impending Doom

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Impending Doom

We were ill prepared for this snowfall but proceeded up anyway. By the time we got to the top there were 60pmh winds and snow going every direction but down. This picture i think gives an eerie perspective of what was coming in this great valley heading up the peak on a climb that almost killed us both.

Calm Before the Storm

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Calm Before the Storm

When we were heading to do Bold Peak Eklutna lake was as calm as could be. Almost no movemnt at all on it. That was made all the more eerie by the 40-60mph winds we got hit by on the peak and the snow that can be seen falling on the mountains. The sun there was not very convincing of it being daylight.

Goat Rocks, the Twin Peaks,  and Mount POW/MIA

Average Rating = 3.84/5 Goat Rocks, the Twin Peaks, and Mount POW/MIA

This is the view of (L to R) of the Twin Peaks, Goat Rocks and Mount POW/MIA from the Veteran's Wall of Honor in Wasilla, Alaska. The flat topped peak on the right is the only place in the United States that the USGS has named for those who have served their country and paid the price.

This is a picture from my digital video of the plaque I placed on top of Mount POW/MIA after my "mini-epic" hike up and down the peak on 8 AUGUST 2002.

Average Rating = 3.82/5 Eklutna Reservoir from Mt. POW/MIA

A view from the top of Mount POW/MIA during the rain/snow storm that I climbed it during. My elevation is almost 4,400 feet ASL, and the lake is at 500 feet ASL.

POW/MIA flag and memorial marker.

Average Rating = 3.89/5 POW/MIA flag and memorial marker.

This is the flag at the top of Mt. POW/MIA. The wind was howling and the rain and sleet were whipping it around, but it was worth it for the talk I had with my dad.

The final ridge...

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The final ridge...

This is a view back down the last ridge up Mt. POW/MIA. You can see that the weather was not too great, and with the visibility, the drop on the left (about 400 feet) looked like the edge of the world.
