Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit- Edward Abbey

It still amazes me how stupid happy I can get while hiking. Being outside, surrounded by good friends and gorgeous views has the ability to make a ridiculous grin spread across my face even when I’m unnecessarily crossing  a river 5 times or getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. This weekend, along with a couple of friends, I stayed at the Thorofare Cabin, which I must say is a really nice perk of being an NPS employee. There are a couple of cabins throughout Denali; During the winter the cabins are used by mushers to patrol the park. This cabin is located along side the toe of the Muldrow Glacier and has spectacular views of the Mountain when it’s out.
