Kesugi Ridge 2013

Sept. 8 2013


Fall is peaking here on the ridge. The red bearberry makes a great contrast to the white caribou lichen.  The morning air is cold and crisp;  frozen puddles create wonderful designs. It is hard to take our eyes off Denali as we travel the trail. We hike among interesting rock formations, before descending to a long board walk. Then the trail takes us back to the ridge and meanders between high alpine lakes.
