AK Ingenue: Springtime in the Chugach
Spring has sprung in Valdez and this past weekend was a glorious time to get out and enjoy bluebird days.
Saturday I took my loaner Classic skis for a loop around the Mineral Creek trail. Prince William Sound Community College lets you check out Nordic loaner gear for free. They have really nice Classic and Skate skis as well as snowshoes. I quickly discovered I made a good decision when I went snowshoeing the other day. Glad I didn’t try to cross the river during my snowshoe outing the other night. You can’t. It’s simply not possible.
Sunday I loaded up the skis onto my pack and walked out to the highway to have a hand at the local “thing”hitching up to the pass. Some nice folks – Jim and Magdalena – picked me up and I invited myself to ski with them at the Worthington Glacier.
Here’s a few pix from the weekend.
