Exit Glacier, Kenai Fjords
Category: Outdoor Scenes
Photo and caption by Sarah Yost
Alaska was a pivotal moment for me. I left all that I knew behind for a couple of weeks of backpacking. I met up with a love interest (photographed here) in Sitka after a couple of days hiking in Juneau alone. We continued the trip together and Exit Glacier was our last excursion before I headed back home. The Glacier hike was impromptu and probably the best decision of my life. I will not soon forget the Harding Ice Fields or the sense of encompassment I found there.
Location: Kenai Peninsula Borough, Alaska
