Improved Trail

This picture was taken on the final approach to the treeline. The trail is quite steep here, and on previous trips it was deeply rutted and fairly muddy. Rocks and gravel have been arranged to provide steps, while channels were dug off to the side help control future trail erosion.

Location: Mt. Edgecumbe Trail on Kruzof Island near Sitka, Alaska

Previous: The Shelter
