A Photo For April

April marks the turning point in Alaska.  The long, dark days start to turn bright, the snow begins to melt, and it’s got me looking forward to summertime hiking.  This photo was taken last year from the top of Harp Mountain, a 5,000 ft peak near Eagle River, AK.  It’s a steep climb with no switchbacks, but the views from the top are clearly rewarding!  My wife and I call it date night!
