Hiking the Tors

Frommage's cousin and girlfriend came from Georgia for a whirlwind Alaskan adventure visit. Never have I had houseguests that were so hellbent on doing and seeing EVERYTHING in one week. Of course, we benefited, as we did almost everything with them....
Here we are chilling by the fire up on the Tors---a fifteen mile hike: 10 miles up, 5 miles down. Really amazing pluton rock formations at the top.....alpine tundra landscape and we the only humans in site. Silent and beautiful.

Marital bliss. 5 years as of summer solstice.
All I need is a rock, a log, this man, and a Nalgene full of red wine.
Total happiness.

Hiking the next morning---sunny, finally! We were at the end of the trail by 2pm and headed over to the hot springs to soak off the trail mud.

Yes! Wonderfully intact---the soapbox was a great container. Sadly, no one has been to visit it. Maybe next year... ('Blow Off' has had the most visitors.)
