Maclaren Summit Trail

IMG_1628 small

High tundra and mountain lakes sparkle in the foreground while Mt. Deborah and the Maclaren Glacier loom behind.  To the east, the Maclaren Valley slices from the glacier south, broadening toward the sunlight.  Clouds dapple the landscape and sky with moving shadows and chameleon shades on the water and fall colors.  We are building trail across this dreamscape.  How in the world did we land an incredible gig like this?  I feel like Michaelangelo with a perfect block of marble.  Really?  I get to build an original trail here?
