The Most Beautiful Day Ever: Triangle Peak

I am still glowing from the day I had. Maybe its the combination of endorphins and sunshine, amazing views and good music...not sure, but I have a new favorite place to go, and its called Triangle Peak. An incredible reward to effort to view ratio. The funny thing is I've been up here before, but it might have been one of the shortest summit stays ever... high winds, heavy gropple, and white out conditions do not encourage lingering.

Look close and you can see Denali and Foraker at the head of the valley, it's so awesome when you can see an entirely different mountain ranges than the one your standing in.

As I was leaving Anchorage Brody called me and told me he was planning on going flying. I really wish I could have gone, but I was on my own mission and told Brody he should try and buzz me when he made it out. I guestimated my arrival on the top, and was incredibly accurate (helped to have a goal)!....

I'm so thankful that I gave this peak a second go around...there are a lot of the stellar mountain and lake views...

I would really like to come back here and go up Calliope, the mountains back in this valley are incredibly aesthetic. It almost felt like an honor to be here in somewhat fair weather.
