We started at about 10pm at the Crow Pass trailhead in Girdwood. It took us about an hour to get up to Crystal Lake, and we camped out because we had gotten such a late start.
The next day we got up early, cooked some breakfast, and headed off in the direction of Eagle River. Here I am in front of Raven Glacier.
I just waded across Clear Creek.
Looking downvalley towards Eagle River. Vertigo Peak and The Devil's Mistress are in the background.
Before long, we came to the river. It was pretty high. We forded it with little difficulty however.
The trip across the river was not without its discomforts.
Mighty Eagle Glacier. We made good time for the rest of the hike to the ERNC and were back in town in time for dinner.
