I had some great memories with autumn colors around Fort Valley for the previous two years. So this time in mid-October 2021, I decided to head a bit west towards Wolf Gap, on the boundary of Virginia and West Virginia, and hike two popular trails in the region, Tibbet Knob and Big Schloss, in peak foliage season.

Day 4 of 2021 Alaska Trip, South Pioneer Peak, Jewel of Chugach Mountains

Fourth day of my 2021 Alaska trip and last day in the Anchorage vicinity. I climbed and summited South Pioneer Peak, a magnificent YDS class 3 mountain on the southern bank of Knik River that’s an enchanting sight from much of the Mat-Su Valley. It’s a long day-hike with grueling elevation gains, but this time I was better prepared, mentally and physically, and it turned out to be a much memorable experience.
