Trail time with Layla on Mother's Day

Layla shared time by my side along Prospect Heights Trail in the Chugach Range Sunday.  We launched from the trailhead around 8 a.m.

We were joined by Ken and his dog Baku, and Dawn, Wayne and their dogs Dakota and Deja for a three hour hike in the hills.  Early morning temps were around 45 degrees.  By close to noon, the temperature was closer to 60.

This was our first hike of the year without ice, snow and winter gear.  Though, I did try out a new gear pack and hauled some camera equipment along to test things out.

Awesome day with great people and their dogs.
