Hike to the top of the cliffs

I had a cold on Friday (July 2)  so I didn't make it all the way to the tops of the St. George Society cliffs (strange name, but that's what they're called), but I made it to the tops of the cliffs right next to them.  The weather was so darned perfect and the light was so totally mid-day, that the photos aren't actually that interesting!  But have a look anyway, the hike was great.

This photo is on the hills above Uluksan point- there is this man-made row of rocks, I don't know what it's marking:


Here is a look at the jagged cliffs from above:


Looking the other way:


Looking down- cool patterns the ice is making as it breaks up at the beach, eh?


Here's some blog foreshadowing- those cliffs in the upper-right hand corner are the St. George Society Cliffs, and in the next installment I hike to the base of those (well, almost, I hike to the base of these cliffs featured today, but have a fantastic view of the better St. G. S. cliffs)

  1. Wow! Looks spectacular, and dangerous! It's difficult to judge the scale. Need some mountain goats dotting the hills.
