On the edge of the Castner Glacier in the Deltas looking down the Castner Valley into the Eastern Alaska Range. Sunny, snowy and 30 below temperatures make for fun camping and skiing!
CJ At the Cave
Ice cave from a water carved channel through the southern margin of the Castner Glacier. It collapses a little bit more every year and there's not much left to it now. More of an arch than a cave right now.
Descending from the Cave

Wind blown snow dunes on the moraine. Wandering around on the Castner Glacier in winter.
The Castner Glacier is partially vegetated with a lot of willows and alders. It makes for interesting skiing when the snow is soft. Black Cap and White Princess are off in the distance with some lenticulars starting to form.
