I have a tough time putting into words my experience in Alaska. I went on two backpacking trips on the same trail and I've been on two Coast Guard helicopter rides. I love Alaska, I hope to return back to Alaska. I don't know if I'll go backpacking or not. Just last week I told Delilah I was thinking about selling my backpacking equipment. I haven't used it since my last backpacking trip to Alaska in 2001. I have a box full of pictures from my backpacking trips. These are just five pictures I liked the most while doing a quick skim through my Alaska pics. These are from my first trip to Alaska in 1999. No with out further ado......

This was the furthest we made it on the first trip. We were about a full day out from the final destination.

The infamous Coast Guard. The ridge behind the chopper is about one mile away.

A classic boulder scramble.

Pops in shorts in the snow!?!?!?

This is my all time favorite picture of any trip I've been on. I actually have this picture framed poster size in our living room.

I hoped you enjoyed.
