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.

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
