Mount Alyeska and Max's Mountain

The day after I ran Mt. Marathon, my wife, three kids, and I decided to hike around Girdwood. After a three hour hike to reach the top of the tram at the Alyeska Ski Resort, I said goodbye to my family and set out to climb Mount Alyeska and Max's Mountain. They rode the tram down to the parking lot and I ran the ridges up to higher altitude. The first picture in this collection is a view from the summit of Mount Alyeska.
