The climb to Turnagain Pass made me regurcitate all that pizza that I had had 1-2 hrs before. But the scenery was worth it. These mountains are So.Very.Green!!!
The ocean and all the creeks were more than 1hr behind at this point and we were completely surrounded by giants.
A few kms later we got to the Bertha Creek Campground, set up the tent and slept like babies for 8hrs straight despite the fact that it rained hard for a few good hours over night.
Right before calling it a day though, our French neighbour, Vincent, came over with a couple of beers. He is a mountain guide and a tree climber back in France. Apparently tree climbing is a thing there. He’s paid to collect seeds but also to teach children and adults how to climb trees and sleep in them too. I found that very interesting!
We are now in Moose Pass enjoying a copious breakfast and the famous chocolate fudge they have here.
50km till we reach Seward.
