|A view from earlier this summer about half way up the mountain|
Next Sunday (20th of July) I am leading an Audubon hike up Mount Monashka. This is one of my favorite hikes because you get to hike through both Sitka Spruce rain forest and Kodiak's high alpine. And then when you get to the top you have one of the best views there is of town. The mountain is very close to the ocean and you feel right above it. However it is a STEEP climb and there are lots of muddy areas and creek crossings - so be prepared.
Anyway, if you are interested I leave from the Visitors Center by the Ferry landing at 9:30 AM. See hiking schedule posted below for more details or click here for more information. Patrick
