Before starting this summer's research project (more to come about this), I decided to take a short vacation from my three summer classes and research preparation. The 27-mile Pinnell Trail seemed like a perfect option. Located on the Steese Highway near Eagle Summit (a famous climb on the Yukon Quest), the Pinnell Trail traverses high mountain tundra with steep climbs and equally impressive views (unless it's completely obscured in fog) . Because the region is prone to high winds and dense fog with zero trees to offer protection, two shelter cabins are evenly spaced along the trail for use on a first come, first serve basis. Below are a few pictures of the INCREDIBLE views.
