Skyline Trail, Alaska

Skyline3

The tops of the mountains in Alaska sometimes remind me of stories people have told me about Scotland. It’s virtually the same latitude as Scotland here, I think; sometimes the jags of the mountains here remind me of bones, like skeletal protrusions of a living being settled down to earth at last. Caught up in the mist hiking on Skyline Trail on the Kenai Peninsula last fall, I spent most of the morning looking for ghosts.
