Mile Hi Peak
Alaska

Mile High Peak was the high point of my hike (literally and figuratively) from Mile High Trailhead to Tucker Mountain to Mount Magnificent to Mile High Peak to Vista Peak to Black Tail Rocks Peak down to the Baldy Trailhead. I was able to hike through the night with enough natural light from the twilight. The sun set at 23:42 and rose at 04:17, but it does not get dark when the sun sets. What a way to celebrate the solstice.
