Located on an alpine bench above Chitistone Canyon, this 5000’ home for Dall sheep and mountain goat, is an excellent spot for day hiking and backpacking. View the snowy ampitheater of the University Range from nearby higher terrain.
We had a truly spectacular visit to Alaska but the highlight of our vacation was certainly our week-long Chitistone Backpack (ing trip). The flights in and out were awesome; we have great photos along with fond memories of the flights with Wrangell Mountain Air. Thanks again for getting us in and out safely and with good humor and conversation. We hope to fly with you again on our next Alaskan trip. .
