Hiking the Chugach

The next time your head gets filled with the clutter of life, take off for the mountains. Anchorage is unique because you can spend the day stressing out in traffic or at the office, and find yourself de-stressing in the alpine high country an hour later. This week we’re revisiting one of our favorite shows from last summer. Tune in while we put together a Chugach trail guide on the air.

We’ll hear from former APRN correspondent Sara Bernard, who embedded with a teenage trail crew last summer at the Spencer Glacier Whistlestop. What do teens learn from the outdoors? We’ll also hear some music from Alaska quintet the Super Saturated Sugar Strings. For a sneak peek from their new album, “Heart Shaped Leaves,” click here.
