We headed North from Anchorage to attempt to ski the North Face of Mount Drum (12,010 ft). We pulled over a few miles after the Tok cut-off on the Glen Highway and started skinning from our cars.
After about an hour of bushwhacking we dropped into the Copper River where we quickly turned off and started skinning up the Sanford River.
It was nice and sunny during the day, but dropped to around -30° at night while camping on the river.
We heading up an unnamed drainage about 4 miles after the bend in the Sanford River toward Mt. Drum.
Our camp that we cashed our sleds at.
This was the basin our high camp was in.
The lack of snow made for minimal snow bridges and blue ice which made us have to abandon our summit attempt.
It was still a amazing trip with many funny moments!
