Even though the weather was still rainy, I didn’t feel like sitting all day in the tent.  So I set out for a hike up to the Mt. Healy Overlook.  This trail heads part-way up to the summit of Mt. Healy.  This hike reminded me of trails in California more than anything so far in Alaska, as it was a trail and had elevation gain.  It also led to some nice views.


An arctic ground squirrel was rummaging around at the overlook, and posed for pictures. J
