First Creek Valley: Denali National Park, Alaska
A long hike around the mountain to the left eventually paid off. After searching and searching for a previously recorded site, we stumbled upon this amazing end blade literally just as we were about to give up our search.
To get back to camp, instead of going back around the mountain, we decided to go down into along First Creek. The water down there was a bright turquoise color and had a white film floating atop it. Off in the far distance is Owl Ridge, an early Holocene site that has been recently revisited by the kind folks at Texas A&M University.
