Tundra’s Last Gleaming
A ridge runs along the immense, shattered Knik Glacier, miles and miles above its terminus, offering a stunning overlook of the place where its two main forks merge beneath the 10,610-foot Mount Goode. This location would be all but impossible to reach without a helicopter. And yet, once there, you could walk slopes that seemed to extend for miles. I think about all the other islands of idyllic beauty that lie surrounded by rugged terrain all across Alaska, still waiting to be noticed and explored.
