Mt. Huntington, Alaska Range, near Mt. McKinley (Denali), it’s sheer face catching evening light. Bold and humbling. I was so glad to be back on the ground after this small plane ride around the massive peak of Denali.

On a crisp, blue-sky, Colorado, fall day we started our journey leaving Carbondale at the base of Mt. Sopris heading toward Redstone and Marble. At stream’s edge and at the end of this narrow, once traveled, overgrown, dirt road lay a homestead dotted with numerous outbuildings. One can almost hear the past bustle of ranch equipment, animals and family as a long workday is ahead getting ready for winter, foretold by the backdrop of early, snow-laden peaks of McClure Pass. Next will be Kebler Pass and Crested Butte, hopefully before dark.
