I had to move my site due to Tripods new policy of only providing 20 megs of
free space, my site currently uses the old maximum at nearly 49 megs. As you may
have noticed my site was also being shut down on a daily basis due to exceeding
Tripod's new bandwidth policy--but hey what could I expect for free. It was fun
while it lasted.
In the coming weeks I hope to release the new format of Alpinejo-Backcountry
Trails Guide with a new database and searching capabilities.
Thanks for visiting!

trail follows an old logging
road for a awhile through the
forest. It skirts the edge of
Glacier Creek, then drops down
to the creek. The trail ends at
Glacier Lake, with only a rough
path along the lake shore.
Glacier Lake is well worth a afternoon or weekend visit. We opted for a
day hike. It is an easy hike to the lake.
The trail winds through some beautiful
old growth before opening up.
There is one small hill climb to get the
ol' heart pumping before you reach the
lake. This is a good early season
warm up for the more strenuous summer
hiking season. The lake is set in
a small basin surrounded by ridges on
There is good access
to lake shore while the lake is
down. But on the one end you
have to do a bit of rock
climbing, clinging to a rock
face, to make it all the way
around the lake
Fishing-- fishing was surprisingly
good considering it was
attempted in almost white out and
winding conditions. It
was a great day of fishing and catching.
