hiked up to the fabled Upper Sarkar lake falls. the journey begins at the southern end of sarkar lake. grab a canoe or paddle boat and paddle to the top of the lake about 5 mile paddle, then from the top end of the lake, you follow the stream to the falls... another couple miles through thick stuff. lots of climing and ducking.... here is the end result.



Enjoy...

That is gorgeous! I think most people think of Alaska as this big snow and ice-covered wilderness (which I am sure it is in winter!) but forget that it has a summer too. And what a summer! From all I have heard and read, you can produce a ton of incredibly big vegetables in Alaska summer gardens. If I wasn't too old to start over, I would be very tempted to head your way. Thanks for the video!
