Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: 16,237 ft (4,949 m) mighty Mt Sanford in the Wrangell Mountains of eastern interior of Alaska. Third biggest volcano in the United States.

This view is from the Tok Cutoff Road which runs between Tok and Glenallen.

On March 12, 1948, Northwest Airlines Flight 4422 crashed into Mount Sanford. All 24 passengers and 6 crew members were killed. The wreckage was quickly covered by snow and was not found again until 1999. Mt Sanford holds many secrets...

Thanks for stopping by Rick. Yup, we definitely have been lucky. Good skies down there for several days, not a common thing for these giant mountains.
