Mt. Eklutna

It's not too late for a hike in the mountains.  If fact, with the right gear you can hike in the Chugach almost any time of year.  With the mild temperatures and a receding snowline we decided to return to one of our favorite hikes.  The Bear Point to Mt. Eklutna hike has some of the the best view from the front range of the Chugach even on a cloudy day like today.  From the Big Peters Creek trailhead we took the trail up to Bear Point and then continued up the ridge to Mt. Eklutna descending the Mt. Eklutna trail.  There are still a few trees with fall colors but for the most part the leaves were down.  The nice thing about the leaves being down is you can see clearly into the woods.  This time I spotted a camper in the woods I had never seen before.  I suspect this eerie old camper trailer was someone's hunting camp many years ago.

I love this trailhead sign
