Midnight Glacier Hike

Alyeska Glacier

As we traversing the glacier we probe for dangerous cravasses hidden beneath the snowfield.

It was a steep dropoff, but the views from the ridge were stunning.

Can you spot the paraglider?

It's just about Midnight and the sun is beaming through the overcast sky.

Our guide knew quite a bit about the area.

Smile, you're in Alaska!

Looking back on the town of Girdwood and the Turnagain Arm inlet.

We make it back in town in time for a late dinner at the Silvertip Grill.

It's 12:20 am and despite the ceiling of clouds, all is still quite visible.


The rest of our time in Girdwood was lovely.

We spent only one night in Talkeena but snuck into the Twisted Creek Brewery at 6am to catch the USA vs. Algeria World Cup match with some of the employees.

Complimentary coffee was served, as was some justice for team USA in the 91st minute.

After the match, we grabbed breakfast down the street at the one and only Roadhouse.

Mmmm...biscuits and gravy.

This is incredible eating.
