Girdwood Rainforest- May, 2008

We walked on a trail through the rain forest behind the Alyeska Lodge in Girdwood. It was unbelievable to see the trees and vegetation. You could see where the snow had come across the trail in small avalanches earlier. They were still skiing above the trail on this same mountain because they had just had fresh snow before we got there.

This is a picture of the log Doug WOULD NOT cross so I could get his picture on it!!!

Snow from the avalanche across the trail. It was obviously impassable for the casual hikers (like us) in the not-too-distant past.
