Terrific views are never in short supply in Alaska, but those from the Bomber Traverse were especially incredible. Giant, glacially carved valleys, pristine blue lakes and glaciers abound!
Here's a shot from our lunch view at the top of the Backdoor Gap. After lunch we would drop over 1300 ft in less than .8 mi straight down this chute to cross over to the Mint Hut. If you look really closely you can just see the hut's green roof near the far right edge in the bottom third.
The glacier in the top of the frame is the Mint Glacier, which would be shrouded in fog as we searched for the ice (in my previous post) about three hours after this shot was taken from the top of the Gap.
