A short side trip up to Savage Cabin.
Nails in the windows keep the bears from breaking and entering.
Just a nice bit of texture that caught my eye.

Reflections and colors along Horseshoe Lakes.
There is some very contorted rock along the trail here. The geology is torqued.

And the race is on! Along the Nebesna Highway into Wrangel St. Elias.
