Sam and Wendy Eklutna Adventure

Wendy and I coordinated for a fun 4 day trip in the Chugach. We biked out to the junction of the Eklutna Lake trail and the East Fork trail, then bushwhacked on animal trails up through small cliffbands on the South side of Stiver's Gully to a basecamp on the moraine between Bold (7,522') and Bashful (8,005') Peak. We put in attempts on both peaks and came close to the summit of both, and overall had a really good trip and caught some wild scenery in the heart of the Chugach.

Gorgeous cloud as we search for a path down from our basecamp back into the Eklutna Valley to find our bikes and head back to town...
