McHugh Peak


Bear Valley and environs. New house location is circled at left. Actually, we're not buying that house anymore. This photo is of Cleveland, OH.

8pm in July.

View southwest over Turnagain Arm and the remote mountains of the Chugach Forest.

The 3 mile trail to McHugh Peak leaves from the Honey Bear trailhead.

Upper Rabbit Creek is arrow straight, incised into glacial till. The trail to Rabbit Lake traverses the brushy slope on the other side of the creek.

McHugh summit saddle.

Alpine vegetation forms patterned ground. Lots of periglacial features up here.
