Today is my 29th birthday.
After our detour, we made a mad rush to the airport, only to discover that our flights were delayed.
Let me preface this post by saying you should NEVER believe Alaskans when they recommend "easy" trails!
The tram ride was even more beautiful on the way back down as by then, the sun had begun to set.
This trail beat Tower Arches at Arches National Park as the hardest trail I have ever done—and it sure as English rain was not 3.4 miles!
When Sitka appeared as a stopover on my itinerary, I didn't even bother to look it up.
