Sunday began early with a pre-sunrise hiking launch near Potter Station.
The trail follows above the Seward Highway overlooking Turnagain Arm and takes travelers to McHugh Creek. For the adventurous - and more conditioned hiker - it continues much farther beyond.
The first 1/3 of our hike - with about 10 dogs and their five people - was an uphill ice path. Crampons and ski poles were oh-so helpful.
In all, we covered about four miles and enjoyed the views and dogs along the intlet.
