Sunny South Fork Tour

We followed Eruk's ski tracks and Lucy's pawprints toward Eagle Lake on a sunny South Fork ski tour.  Eruk posted a good report on Cross-Country Alaska, a nice place to get updates on trail conditions.  Doc and I saw only two other skiers on the springlike day, and about 20 hikers and snow-shoers.  The trail is pretty well used. 

We skied a couple of hours out, and turned back shadows enveloped the upper valley.  We followed the sun.  
Cantata Peak, Calliope Mountain and Triangle Peak

The Calliope massif towers over the South Fork valley like a sentinel guarding the heart of the Chugach.
