We may have had the worst ever route description and rendering turning a challenging 4 mile hike into what seemed like an endless stretch. But in the end, it made the honey pot that much sweeter, arriving to the Snowbird Hut in the Talkeetna range out on a remote glacier – all to ourselves – with 360 degree stunning views.
With an 8pm departure from Marge, we settled into this New Zealand (better known to most as Lord of the Rings) -esque destination.
Camp was just “one mile” away from the Snowbird hut on the other side of the pass. Turns out, it was a world away in many regards!
Finally arriving to the hut, tucked away at the toe of the glacier afforded us stunning views into the valley below.
The ever anticipated Snowbird Hut Oops — that’s the outhouse, with the world’s greatest top-of-the-thrown views!
This is Snowbird Hut, a 2010 community built delight with impressive and storied architecture.
