Our first 7000 footer

Saturday night Brian and I and our friends Andy and Karen biked 10 miles to the end of Eklutna Lake to make a 2nd attempt on Bold Peak. The peak is around 7500 feet high and we start at about 1000 feet, so we had our work cut out for us. Last year Brian and I started way too late and only made it to 3800 feet. This year we were determined to make it to the top and luckily we had great weather. We camped at the base of the peak Saturday night and started our ascent at 8:15 am. Here are some pictures and the story...

Bold Peak!

Great pix.
Was that a guy named MORK on the trail register?
