Mount McGinnis trail report.

It’s really long. It felt really hot even though it was probably just in the 70’s. And it may not be the best option after days of high stress organizing, and less sleep than usual.

But…it is amazing country, great views (really, I live somewhere that this is a view I can get to in a day???), and great company (two friends and their dogs as well).

It’s also rather steep at times and reminds me again that Alaska trails are different than trails in other places I have been. ie they kick my ass.

Sophie…tired even though we were only about halfway through.
The peak viewed from the parking lot.
Elevation profile. It was about 12 miles round trip…we did some backtracking so I didn’t get an accurate watch read on mileage and the added uphill seen in the downhill portion isn’t usually necessary…
