August 1986 - Alaska Range - Anderson Pass Traverse with wife, another couple, and two friends. RIP, Craig.
Found this when I was looking for photos of someone else. I had my 31st birthday on our trip. My good friend, Gary, was our guide.
Just like my ANWR and Gates of the Arctic trips, I had a big pack. We all did. Nine days of food, fuel, camp gear, tent, and clothing for wet, windy and cold. We also carried glacier crossing gear (rope, axes, crampons, crevasse rescue) and a medical kit. No cell phones though :-)
