 #12 The area around the MacMillan Pass is extremely pretty as there are still big mountains here. The area around them changes from forest with mountains to a mix of Tundra, Forests, and Mountains. This area is best viewed in early fall or late summer, as after the first frost the large areas of willow brush turn bright orange and red. There are good places to hike and camp in this area, but no developed trails or campgrounds exist.
