Eklutna Traverse April 2018

The Eklutna Traverse is one of the longest hut to hut tours in the United States and certainly the longest in Alaska. The route winds itself through the Western Chugach's beautiful mountain glaciers stopping in every once in awhile at fabulous A-frame huts. On this trip, Alaska blessed us with amazing weather. And Susan prooved that even when you're 60, you can still have fun in the mountains in extreme places.

 A frozen Eklutna Lake makes the exit out much quicker indeed!
