Day trip up the Steese

Nice day for a drive. 50 degrees in North Pole this morning. It was 54 degrees when we got to Davidson Ditch, 63 mile Steese. We went on up to 12 Mile Summit. Temperature dropped to 44 but, the sun was out. We walked down the Circle to Fairbanks Trail for a while. I got a few nice photos of Alpine flowers just starting to pop out. Then I found a very interesting dug out area in a small rocky mound… We drove on up to Eagle Summit to hike around. The trail was recently snowed on, they really like folks to stick to walking on the trail so we turned back. Found another area with an unmarked trail a few miles away. Found alot of wildflowers here! Man was it windy,and cool. 40 degrees. We wandered around taking photos of flowers, clouds and mountains. It tried to snow, just enough to make you wonder how far you should go out the trail. After exploring for a few hours we headed back down to a warmer area for lunch . We found a spot to pull off the road around 85 mile Steese that looked over a pond. 64 degrees and sunny! Sandwiches are always better outside in the sunshine. Lots of pics below.
