Hatcher Pass

Hatcher Pass
One of the last days we were in Alaska we drove first from Glennallen to Palmer and then after getting a motel for the evening drove to Hatcher Pass and the Independence Mine. This photo was taken near the top of Hatcher Pass.

Beautiful Ron, for a time we lived just "down the hill" from Palmer, in Sutton near the Hatcher Pass, this is a wonderful take of the area. The former "Colony" --Palmer, is a great place. Rosie taught school for a time there. And oh, but the vegetables grow to a HUGE siz & delicious.

Ron, this is a wonderful take on Hatcher Pass. The former "Colony", Palmer is a great city. Rosie taught school from our home, down the hill, in Sutton. Palmer grows great and huge vegetables. This due to so much summer sunshine. So glad you made this stop.

Alaska had the same kind of winter we had here in Washington, about 20% of normal snowfall and now, like us, they are having a warm and dry summer.

Yeah, but it's still astounding to not see any snow cover on those peaks in June.... Amazing how quickly the climate is changing.

Ron Hanko has replied to Fizgig
Washington is the same. Every time we go through the mountains it's as though we're in a different country. They don't look the same without the snow.

I did notice the crazy weather pattern this summer causing normally cool states like WA to have hotter temps. than even we normally see here.... Our misery has been tropical waves coming every every few days which turn out airmass into a sauna. Yeah, our temps. aren't as hot as most summers, but when 85˙F feels like 95˙F 'cause of the humidity & high dew pts., it doesn't feel like we're catching a break {;^\

Great looking mountains on this pass road. A bit surprising they thaw off completely so far north... that cant be a very huge elevation pass, no?

Ron Hanko has replied to Sonja
The road through the pass reaches nearly 4000 feet (1200 meters) and the peaks are higher, of course, but a lack of snow last winter and a very warm summer have done the same thing as in Washington - left the peaks bare.

Some great scenery here, Ron. As others have said, it looks a little strange without snow but it's good to get a different view.

A stunning landscape shot Ron. I like the traces of snow. We have recently returned from Scotland and there is still snow on some of the mountains too, - quite a bit in places
