Granite Creek Juneau
Painting - Oil On Panel
A postcard sized painting of Granite Basin and the lifting cloud layer, about to reveal the blue sky. There is just one little patch of snow left here. There is no place more stunning than southeast Alaska as the clouds pull back their fingers and reveal those craggy high peaks and glossy meadows. Everything is so much bigger and steeper than it appears. I think I captured some of that.
Half-day to overnight hikes high in the Granite Creek valley, to Mount Juneau, and across Juneau Ridge. The alpine country of Mount Juneau, Juneau Ridge, and Granite Creek is a fine hiking destination in Juneau�s backyard. These hikes are all more difficult than the Perseverance Trail, with which they share a trailhead. The Mount Juneau hike, 3 miles one way, climbs a relatively short but very steep trail to the peak, at 3,576 feet elevation, which overlooks mountains, ocean, snow, and ice. The trail up Granite Creek, about 4.5 miles one way, leads into the creek�s alpine upper basin below the 4,453- foot dome of Olds Mountain. The strenuous loop route across the ridge linking Mount Juneau and Granite Creek can be 12 miles of alpine fun and beauty if you tackle it on a clear day. Special features: Alpine ridges and valleys, incredible views, wildflowers.
