Christmas Hike

On Christmas morning I hiked Pillar ridge with our friends Heather and Bob and their son Shane. They are in town for 2 weeks and staying next door to us.

 The sun was fresh out of the ocean horizon.   The light cast on the mountains was breathtaking. It is so unusual to be able to hike on Pillar in the end of December! Typically the mountain is covered in ice and snow and its not easy to drive to the top of the mountain.

Shane and Stuey raced ahead, in an unspoken race. Taking turns dashing in front of eachother and breathless at times. Icy at times, with crisp air, the hike woke up all our senses on Christmas morning.

It's hard to believe it was that nice in town on Christmas day! It was pretty rainy and slushy in Chiniak. We never would have guessed it was sunny in town.
