Flattop Mountain

The sun was finally shining in Anchorage last week...and on the way to a friend's house to grill, Flattop Mountain caught my eye. 

The most climbed mountain in the state of Alaska, Flattop is a 3,500 foot mountain located in Chugach State Park just east of Anchorage. Although I see Flattop on a daily basis when I drive to and from work, the mountain can really be stunning when the flat peak, still covered by snow, is contrasted by the bright blue sky and budding trees.

I manipulated this photo using Instagram...such a fun app available via the iTunes App Store.
