Ascent Trip Report

Three hours round trip, a rough and slippery trail leading to a top surprisingly alpine in character. The view must be incredible but neither I nor the many other people who hiked Stokes today saw it thanks to the clouds that have been hugging the area for days. A nice walk in a rare sunken mountain range. I think there's a proper geological term for that; Kenai Fjords are another example of this cool effect.
