Mount Blackburn, the 5th highest peak in the US; a grand mountain!
Sometimes those moments in the mountains are just too grand to describe; This is one of those views that is beyond the sublime. The Great Horned Owls hooting behind me only added to the ambience. The more time I spend in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, the more impressive the place appears.
As the light faded, I quietly breathed my “thank you”, turned the skis around, and eased toward the night.
