April 8, 2010 snow hike evening

The Thursday evening hike with our fearless leader Toshi (left)
took us from Prospect Heights trailhead to gasline, Alder trail and
others on the hillside of Anchorage. We all enjoyed the spring
snow-hiking conditions and the occasional post-holing, but helped
each other through it.

This is a good view of flattop named for obvious reasons!
We had a perfectly clear spring evening for hiking.

This is O'Malley peak and False O'Malley just behind the spruce tree.
the broad expanse is known as the ballfield which has a great
moon-scape kind of terrain
that's fun to hike through after the steep gully up to it.
