alaska scenery...hanging valley
you can see the valley we are heading to in the picture above. it's called hanging valley as it's another valley up off of the south fork trail system. the south fork trails take you back to eagle and symphony lakes. it's also a beautiful hike. i always seem to make sure i get there for fall as it's spectacular in fall. i especially love hanging valley though. i still haven't been all the way back in the valley. it's a bit of a trek and not that it's especially tough, but it is a time commitment. would be great to just backpack up and camp over night, explore a bit and head back. didn't see much of bear signs but i am liking the idea of an electric fence. still have to investigate that more. has to be lightweight enough to carry and easy to set up without electrocuting yourself.
