Hatcher Pass Slide Show

Anchorage Daily New photographer Marc Lester has a fantastic slide show of Hatcher Pass on adn.com.  It’s too good not to post for all my readers as well. 

I wrote about Hatcher Pass last December when we watched a bunch of kids downhill skiing.  There were having blast.  Hatcher Pass is a special place for our family.

Hatcher Pass is one of the crown jewels of the Mat-Su Borough.  It’s a fantastic get-away both summer and winter.  The photo at left was from an overnight camping trip with my kids up by “Monkey Face Rock”.  There is a beautiful valley beyond the rock.  These photos were taken by my daughter Teressa.

Below is the valley above our camping spot.  Is that pretty or what?  That clear mountain stream came directly out of the rocks just to the left of the photo.
