Response to Duppers (Reply #15)

16. He describes the massive changes in Alaska beautifully and

vividly, and the deep sorrow. I wish his observations and thoughts could be captured in a documentary in addition to his book. Maybe..

> I passed several areas where, in the mid-1990s, I would already have been ice-climbing atop frozen waterfalls at this time of year. Now, they were visibly bone dry with temperatures too warm for ice to form.

After arriving at my trailhead, I hiked alone toward a nearby peak. Out of habit, I began with a heavy jacket on, but soon removed it, along with my gloves, in temperatures well above freezing. I wasn’t used to this and it felt abidingly strange to alter my old habits as I climbed.
