Description

At the Alyeska Resort in Girdwood Alaska, when the skiing season is over, the tram will take visitors up to the top of the mountain for the wonderful panoramic scenic views. One has to stay fairly steady to walk the trails up here. The path you see in this photo, with the photographer and his subject, can be a bit scary due to the steep cliff to the right of the photographer. He quickly took the shot and then they moved on.

Mercy! That surely looks dangerous! I wouldn't even want to walk up there, to scary to make a picture! Awesome fave!!! #1656537

Thanks, Jo Ann! You wouldn't believe how high it is up there. But we did walk that path and took pictures. I was terrified the whole time. Believe it or not, that side, during the winter, when it gets mounds of snow on it is for expert skiers. It's like an 75 - 85 degree angle going down. I don't know if anyone has ever done it or if they did, how they survived it. #11467361

Thanks, Patrick. It was a very wonderful adventure. It reminded me of Newfoundland quite a bit. Just higher rocks and grizzly bears. #11483044
