2013 Season Wrap-Up

September 23, 2013 Posted by: Ranger Olson

The snow keeps creeping down the mountains and I’m counting the days until my furlough starts.  This season has flown past for me and I really wish the weather would hold for another patrol or two.  I did manage to squeeze in one last patrol on the north side of the park from Chisana to Nabesna with one of the rangers from Kennecott.  The weather turned on us just as we reached the trailhead on our last day.  Here are a couple of photos from that patrol.

We won’t be putting up any more blog posts until next spring.  If you have questions about the backcountry or trip planning don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Mt. Sanford

In March, 1948, Northwest Flight #4422 slammed into 16,237’ Mt. Sanford, killing all 30 on board. The wreckage was immediately concealed by ice and snow, making recovery efforts impossible. It was 50 years later until wreckage parts surfaced on a glacier, miles from the crash site.
