Jan 24, 2010, Sunnyside - Turnagain Pass, AK
« on: 02/16/10, 07:26 PM »

Lots of activity on the non-motorized side of Turnagain Pass today as conditions were good, so decided to tour on the other side as some early birds had set a track up.  A little over 3000' climb/descent ... 


Upper ridgeline exposed massive amount of touring potential off the back side ...


Upper ridge afforded clear views of Super Bowl arena with Pastoral Peak and distant peak forming the glacier head of Spencer glacier.


Start of the descent.  Consistent blower snow all the way down  Grin


Toured solo, so no action shots  Sad

Great to see an area I know little about.  Wow, touring a-plenty.
