Home / Alaska / Older Photos / 1984: Girdwood - Eklutna Traverse [66]

The winter of '83/'84 Joe, Rich and myself began plotting on doing a glacier trip the following spring. We decided to do the Girdwood/Eklutna Traverse. It runs from the mountains behind Girdwood across 3 glaciers to Eklutna Lake. We went in April because -20° temps would not be likely, and there would still be good snow coverage on the ice to reduce the likely hood of running afoul of crevasses. We had a very good weather window, making it a very enjoyable trip.
