This pano is taken from the top of Vista Peak. It is about 4.5 miles from the Baldy Trailhead in Eagle River, Alaska past Blacktail and Ptarmigan Rocks. This was a great fall hike near the end of September 2011. We even hit a little wet, short-lived snow before reaching Vista. Very dark and overcast day and I feel the photos reflect the mood well. We rushed down the mountain and barely made it to Shine's for some sushi and sake to cap the day off.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area. It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Approximately half of Alaska's 710,231 residents (as per the 2010 United States Census) live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska is the least densely populated state of the U.S.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska
