Cape Spencer, where the inland waters of Southeast meet the North Pacific. When it was decided to automate all Alaskan lighthouses, this was first on the list:

Elfin Cove, last chance for fuel and shelter. Diesel about a dollar more than elsewhere in Southeast:

The Fairweather Range. Keep your Alps, Rockies, Himalayas, these pinnacles rise directly from sea level to more than 15,000' Mount St. Elias at 18,000+ wasn't visible during this passage:

Cape St. Elias, on Kayak Island. This would have been my first choice of lighthouses to de-man:

Here's found image (i.e. not mine) which better conveys the true appearance of Cape St Elias that pinnacle is nearly 500 feet tall:

Wow, love me some mountains! In Sep my hiking partner and I head out to the Sierra Nevada's in CA to complete the John Muir Trail which we started last fall. Had to pull off last Sep after about 70 miles due to illness back home - all is well now. About 135 miles and 39,000 ft of elevation gain to go - finish on top of Mt Whitney - at 14,585, the highest in lower 48 - then we have to hike 10 more miles to get down. At 63 and 65 we figured we better do this hike sooner than later . Then it will be time to do the Great Loop!
