We decided to head for the Chena Dome Trail on Labor Day weekend. We were taking a chance on not finding water on the trail. This time of year, smaller streams and ponds tend to dry up in the AK interior. We were optimistic for the 29 mile hike, though, packing a full loaf of sandwiches and 9 liters of water. Unfortunately, it was dry as a bone and we didn't make it very far. Still had a great time. The views were beautiful, the company good, and the blueberries fat and heavy.
