Pre-Dawn South of Vista Peak
Alaska

Yes this pano is in the same spot as a previous pano, but the diffence in season and the time of day makes up for it. I hiked through the night to get to this point rightbefore sunrise. Anchorage does not get dark this time of year, but the sun does set for 4.5 hours leaving a bright twilight with no darkness. The previous hike with Imke was later in the day in the fall and we rushed down the mountain so that we could go eat sushi at Shine's before they closed. We made it, but just barely. There is a big diffence between summer and fall up here.
