Windy Hike on the Savage Alpine Trail

Windy Hike on the Savage Alpine Trail

A few years ago I hiked the Savage Alpine Trail in Denali National Park with my friend CJ. It turned out to be one of the windiest days I’ve ever spent in the mountains. Hiking from the Mountain Vista parking area, the wind grew stronger the closer we came to the Savage Canyon, which is a natural funnel for wind. Even on otherwise calm days, it tends to be windy here. This day, it was strong enough to knock us over a few times. I had to sit for a while to give the stabilizer muscles in my legs a break.
