Default Quick Trip To Skwentna

I took a quick overnight trip out to my friend Grant's cabin in Skwentna on MLK day. He needed to take a snowmachine out there and leave it so he would have transportation when he flew out, and he wanted to bring his freight sled back. We rode two out and one back. The ride back was brutal. It was like riding a bucking horse for 3 hours. (70 miles out and 70 back.)

Here are some pictures:

This Grant's trailered snowmachines at Deshka Landing. We had the place to ourselves which surprised me as it was a beautiful day and a holiday.


Here is a picture of "The moon, the sky, and the river".


Here is a picture of McKinley (on the right) and Foraker as we headed north on the Yentna.


Here's a panorama view of the same.


The clouds rolled in over night and this is what McKinley looked like heading out.


Because it was fairly warm, we had to pick our way around a lot of open water on the river on the way back.
