Wow, after waiting for almost a month I finally experienced some very light snow while out with the dog’s on our daily walk. It was a heavy, wet snow right on the edge of being graupel but snow none the less and it actually did leave a dusting on the ground. May this be the start of much, much more to come..!
Gunsite Mountain is located perhaps 20 miles west of Glennallen on the Glenn Highway (AK 1) and does offer some very interesting hiking opportunities. I’ve hiked up to the scree field that’s just beneath the ‘notch’ and found a number of fossils from the time when this entire area was the sea floor millions of years back
