Hey Folks,

Here’s one from a couple season ago. Rhane led a great trip up around the Sanford Plateau area, got some great weather, and just crushed it. What a cool place to be on days like this.

I could sit and stare at mountains like Mt. Sanford all day long.

On the right hand side of the pic you see the upper reaches of the Sanford Glacier, which forms the Sanford River, flowing in to the legendary Copper River and on to the Gulf of Alaska.

Not a bad place to pitch a tent.
