Four Mile Creek Ridge

On 6/27/09 a small band of intrepid explorers set out to run a nifty ridge that wraps around Four Mile Creek. This horseshoe shaped ridge contains several peaks, including Mount Eklutna, 4009, 5505, 4826, and 4524. Jesse, Leslie, and I completed the full ridge run/climb in 8 hours 15 minutes. It was a great day to explore! The first picture in this collection is on route to Eklutna Peak.

You can see the horseshoe ridge we plan to run.

As you can tell, I love climbing mountains.
