After having sledged "The Mile" in February 2017, I wanted to return to Hatcher Pass to see it in the summer. Honestly I expected to see rocks and eventually land slides. But what I've gotten was an overwhelming sea of greenery covering the scarps of those majestic mountains!
As most of the places in Alaska, also the Hatcher Pass has different faces depending on the season. The contours and the overwhelming height of the mountains, the fault that goes through its base and the Little Susitna River are the only constants. But to call these constants is also to accept the fact that what you see has the same name it had months or years ago, but still, it's totally new to your eyes. The river, the detailed relief of the mountains, the whole scenario changes . The focus of the observer may bee totally: from the all covering white to the all covering green. And some grays and browns peeping in between.
If you have a chance, don't miss it. It is big enough to offer you a sportive challenge independent of the time of year. And a plate full of three-stars-food for your eyes and your soul!
