It was 100 at Hewitt Lake on June 17th. I spoke to 2 other people out there with thermometers and we all were at 99.5 or 100* in the shade of the porches and of course much hotter in the sun.

I took this picture while walking along the Talachulitna River this past Tuesday June 25th. I don't know what the temp was but I have never wandered the rivers in sandles & shorts without a shirt before. The waders and other clothing items were not practical that day, maybe 95*.......??
Boss enjoyed the water whenever we had to cross from side to side.
And I thought it was hot here in western Wyoming, pushing 90 degrees the last couple of days, which for here is unheard of.
Ard: I know it has happened before as I've seen folks out with just shorts and sandels, but is pretty darn rare for Alaska in the summer. Like you said the normal fare is waders and rain jackets a hat and maybe gloves to stay warm.
I agree....for once its cold here. 66 when I got up this morning, high is only 75. Usually this time of year its 100. This same time last year we hadn't gotten any rain for a month now and temps were steady in the uppers 90s/100
