Cruising Alaska: July 2007
Cathy and I opted to go for a moderate hike up to Father Brown's Cross at an elevation of 2,050 feet
(Father Brown, among other activities, was active in the construction of the original trail up the
mountain in 1908). A map of the trails can be purchased at the tramway ticket office for $1.
Being a weekend, there were many locals on the trails, drawn by the sunshine and the alpine flowers, which seem to be particularly abundant this year throughout the North. The temperature today hit about 70.
