It's been a pretty rainy August so far, so when I woke up to this yesterday morning I couldn't pass up the chance to get out and revel in it.
Here's a view of Eyak from town, you can drive up about as high as the last house and then begin hiking at the ski hill parking lot.
The views from the top were just breathtaking.
Since I wasn't very far from town you could see lots of activity in the distance. Fishing boats heading out of the harbor, getting into position for today's opener.
The coastguard helicopter passed by and a floatplane or two took off from the lake. And high above there were flocks of seagulls enjoying the wind.
And a couple other purple wildflowers I encountered on the way:
I'll leave you with a 360 degree panoramic video of the view from the top, but don't let me spoil it if you want to see it in person first.
