A continuation of Greg Fensterman’s Trek Alaska Blog concerning our 2009 trek.
Sometimes I have to take a break from winter in Alaska and reflect on some of the great backpacking trips we did last summer.
I had a wonderful time on a trek from Skolai Pass to Wolverine Mountain in late July. It was a great crew headed up by Rob Shurmer who had three of his former students in tow – Harry, James and Andrew.
We dropped into Skolai Pass for the start of our trek on a sunny day and headed east towards the Russell glacier. We had to do a bit of scouting around to find a good campsite but came up with a nice one overlooking the glacier. A short hike after setting up camp took got us up close and personal with this impressive glacier.
