Default Harding Icefield Cont

Hi Dennis,

Sorry to hear that you don't think you can make it up. It truly is an adventure just getting here!

Thank you for the comments!

In the last post the last photo was of Seward, here is a closer look at it.

Now heading slightly North-West, these photos are looking towards the South from the North edge of the Icefield:

Now looking to the west (valley that can be seen runs almost due West from this location:

Here is a look at Exit Glacier, you can drive to this from Seward:

Ok, now looking West down the valley you can see Skilak Lake in the far distance, the lake in the middle is called Upper Russian Lake. There is a hiking trail along the Russian River. This trail is used by fisherman in the summer to fish for Red Salmon. I've rode it on my mountain bike, it is a good trail with lots of technical challenges!

Last photo for this post is a zoom of Upper Russian Lake and Skilak Lake-this photo is looking back to the West were Kenai is.

In the far, far distance are the mountains that are on the West side of Cook Inlet.

Best regards,
Mike Bauer
