Hatcher Pass 24

Hatcher Pass 24

After a busy day taking care of necessities around the house I was so thankful that my husband said, 
how about a drive up the Pass.   The sound of that was beyond refreshing.
Driving up there has become a little like breathing.  
I quickly grabbed my backpack and off we went for an evening drive.
Past the river, beyond the MotherLode, and continue by 16 mile run.
Then the decision, up to Independence Mine or over to Summit Lake. 
The bowl, where the mine lives, is notorious for the clouds to linger and invade. 
Up to the summit we go, maybe the paragliders will be there again!
(more on that later :)

A short hike and indecisive clouds made this waterfall the perfect spot.

Keeping things dry, barely :)

Blocking it in.


To many selfies but I just wanted to share the perspectives of this place.
Feeling small, and happy.

As my husband loves to join me and often hikes and does photography,
sometimes he likes to just sit and as he and his dad have said,
"just watch Alaska go by"

"Love Like a Waterfall"
