Saturdays have turned into little adventure days with photography and Amanda. Yesterday we went off to Barbara Falls aka South Fork Eagle River Falls in the Chugach State Park. We had a heavy overcast of smoke from the Funny River Fires a few hundred miles south.
The hike is pretty fair and the scenery pretty good, but better yet when you get to the falls. You can hear them up ahead from the start of the hike. You expect them around every corner because of how loud they are.
It was hard to find a spot that didn't have a good view or were we able to take good photos. Lighting was a little challenging though because of the overcast.
The temperature did take a dip, but we brought hoodies and flannels. The mosquitoes were out pretty good too.
But, even with all the little challenges, it was worth the hike.
And to take a closer look to feel the power and experience the roar.
This definitely made it to our list of places to return to.
