Heading down the trail.
The dogs parked at the cabin.
The elusive Nugget Creek Cabin (photo courtesy of Alaska Div. of Parks, since I forgot to take one). It was kind of anti-climatic after waiting all these years to finally get there. It's just an old, kind of run down, trappers cabin that the state appropriated, made a few improvements, and then rents out to the unsuspecting as a public use cabin. The trail in is quite circuitous and could use some major realignment, but we made it in and out with no serious crashes and the dogs ran great, so like my old friend says, it just don't get much better than that.
