Sugarloaf Hike: Father's Day Extravaganza


Defying common sense (most of us had completed the Midnight Sun Run 10K race barely 10 hours earlier) the Junior Nordics Comp Group left Fairbanks Sunday morning for a Father's Day hike up Sugarloaf Mountain in the Alaska Range, between Healy and Denali Village. The wind was howling and we had to endure a rain squall or two--after bushwacking through brush over the first mile. Alaska hikes are often straight up the mountain, switch backs and meandering trails be damned.

Here are a some pictures from the trip. Enjoy!
