This was supposed to be one of the best hikes in Alaska, and I would say, as long as the weather is good, that is certainly the case. We lucked out and had 3 days of sun. The trail was fantastic.

I have wanted to hike Kesugi Ridge for years and the trail did not disappoint. It was beautiful, and the Alaska I saw in my dreams when I was far away in Australia. But we were lucky, I can't say that it would have been such a great trip if we had been fogged in the whole time!
