Pioneer Peak Minus33 Merinoholics Adventures

Hiking Pioneer Peak

Since I moved to Alaska in the winter of 2012, the mountains have been calling me.

 

I became an outdoor enthusiast fairly quickly and soon found myself on a quest to step beyond the tree line and seek the pristine air of high altitudes. 2 years ago, while doing some research, I came across a mountain that stuck with me.
