Matanuska Peak

When I first came to Palmer in 2007, I was taught to “always climb things that inspire you, regardless of their grade or requirements.” And I saw Matanuska Peak for the first time. It inspired me then, and now, so today I climbed it with two stellar local companions. 6,000′ vertical each way and 10 miles later, I’ll say I’ve earned my cheesy corn grits tonight. I’ll try to get a good photo of the overall peak and area tomorrow, I forgot to take one today…


Eluna- super awesome dog, and me, on the summit.


Not bad for a rainy day...


Coming down the cirque.


Stellar teammates. Thanks you two!
