Custom Hike- Backside Lake, 6/18, Young

A custom Denali National Park Wilderness hike with AMS guide Betsy Young returns today from an amazing area of the backcountry called Backside Lake that is situated  between the Ruth Glacier and Backside Glacier. This is a wild place with lots of bear sign, marmots, ground squirrels, white-tailed ptarmigan, high tundra, glaciated lake, waterfalls with avalanches cascading down, and the list goes on. Enjoy a few photos! Thanks for joining us Roberto and Jessica!
