I hiked to the summit of Mount Margaret in August of 2016 in hopes of photographing Dall Sheep. It is a steep trail, but one that is easy to follow. There are no trails once you reach the tundra zone, but there are enough landmarks that it would be difficult to get lost unless it was incredibly foggy. I was... More

Now, just to be clear - you're not going to be climbing Denali or anything with the route, so no need to worry that it's a giant mountain-climbing adventure. This is possible for anyone!

My buddy and I hiked north along Savage creek for a mile or so, and then cut west, straight up the... More

the call of the wild and lovely visions of fantastic views will never leave my memories. Showing all my friends and family the wonderful photos we were able to take just takes their breaths away too

Trails are hard to find in the park, but we bushwacked some in the way up and maybe found a social trail after about 20 minutes. We were looking for dall sheep (as our bus driver told us they are frequently in the area). After over an hour, we were nearing the summit and getting discouraged as we did not... More
