Mid Day hike to The Dome

Posted for Srini; who has done this hike recently so he knows how beautiful and fun it'll be. Plus he knows where to look for good blueberry and cranberry harvests. This will be a somewhat of a strenuous 5 1/2 mile (round trip) hike to The Dome (aka The Ice Cream Cone). The hike consists of a mellow walk through the thickets followed by a moderately steep climb to the Dome. At the pleasure of the group, we will go to the neighboring peak to get all the water out as sweat. We'll start from the Stuckagain Heights Trailhead at 11 AM. To reach the start point, drive east on Tudor, right onto Campbell Airstrip Rd, which becomes Basher Dr when pavement ends. Follow Basher for 41/2 miles, park in wide clearing where road ends. This hike will offer beautiful views toward town and into the mountains, and a company of friends that is hard to beat. An encounter with a bear is a distinct possibility while availability of ripe edible berries is a guarantee. As usual, bring clothes for hot and cold and wind, and spray for bugs. Dogs are welcome. When and Where: Wednesday, Aug 8, 2007 at 11 AM. Chugach State Park - Campbell Airstrip/ Basher Rd - End of the Road, Anchorage , AK 99507

    Glad I made the last-minute decision to attend....it was maybe one of the shortest RSVPs ever. Nice combo of exercise, berry picking, sun, and visiting.

    Good hike; had never done it before and I loved the views, and the blueberries; thanks Srini for organizing it........very sunny day, and now that I'm home I realize just how much sun I got..........I'm very red........sunscreen was obviously not enough..........must wear a wide brimmed hat next time. It was a beautiful day! :)

    All went to High Point and some beyond to the next summit. We came back with bags full of blueberries and a sense of good feeling.
