Hatcher’s Pass


Yesterday I went on a hike near Palmer, what is known as Hatcher’s Pass.  It is a grouping of trails up in the mountains with abandoned buildings and railroad tracks and tunnels.  The clouds rolled in as we started the hike and they just kept coming…so much so that we had to forgo hiking to a hidden lake because we would have easily lost our way.  I am not sure my photos do those clouds justice…it felt like a dream!  Happy Friday!
