This was at sunset Monday night – seeing this mountain always brings back fond memories.  I would often see this mountain on my drive between home and school, and it always looked different.

At just over 12,000 feet, it really isn’t that tall.  What makes it impressive is the vertical relief.  It rises over 11,000 feet from the banks of the Copper River where I’m standing to the summit.

I had a short, but very fun trip out to Glennallen.  I think the commencement speech went well, and I was able to briefly see all kinds of old friends.  I also saw a surprising amount of wildlife including a beautiful fox and a mink – but didn’t get any photos of those guys.
