This past weekend I went on a small adventure into the backcountry of Wrangell. One of my friends asked my roommate and me if we wanted to hike to a cabin Friday. It was already two in the afternoon, so we decided to take on the adventure even though it was late in the day. We packed as quickly as possible and left for our little adventure with a few other guides. We got a driver who had 4 wheel drive to get us as far as he could on the mountain. We also had a second car parked so that we would have a ride off the mountain. We began the hike with snowshoes on and it was awesome! I had never gone snowshoeing before and it was a blast. We hiked about three miles uphill to the cabin. It was challenging, but fantastic all at the same time! It was snowing during the hike, which made the hike even more beautiful.

The log cabin was so beautiful!!!! It had an amazing stove that warmed the entire, two floor cabin up. The cabin already had fire wood so we stayed nice and toasty while in the cabin. After arriving, the rest of the evening was dedicated to good food and hanging with good people.
When we awoke the next morning, we could not have asked for more beautiful weather. The skies reminded me of Santa Fe skies. The skies were deep, deep blue. We went off exploring to a ridge that was near our cabin and saw beautiful views of Etolin Island and the surrounding area. It was awesome!
After our little adventure on the ridge, we headed back to cabin to clean up. We hiked back down to the car and the views hiking down were amazing too! We saw everything from snow capped mountains to beautiful, open waters. Enjoy the pictures of our little adventure.
