OK, I'll admit it, Mt Marathon kicked my butt. My son, daughter-in-law and I spent 4 1/2 hours getting about 3/4 of the way up Mt Marathon using the jeep trail, and finally I cried uncle. Nevertheless, I'd do it all again! To someone from the lower 48 it is so cool to start out at sea level and hike to above the tree line, to see snow capped mountains across the bay, and to see a tiny cruise ship at the docks in Seward. Some advice--wear really good hiking shoes; have trekking poles; take water; don't forget your camera; wear lots of deodorant; enjoy!
