Following up on previous trips into the remote reaches of the majestic Alaska Range, Steve Levy and his hiking companion spent 9 September days in the shadow of the 13,000 ft. Mt. Hayes and other high peaks east of Denali. The treeless tundra was ablaze with autumn colors and a great variety of wildlife was encountered, including grizzly (scary), caribou, Dall sheep, moose and fox. Covering 50 – 60 miles off-trail, they crossed massive glaciers, seemingly endless rock moraines, spongy tundra, and dense thickets of willow and alder in weather only global warming could provide.
