North to Alaska

DSCN1550-300x225Pardon me for not writing sooner but tis the season for the paddle not the pen. I did experience some extraordinary Boundary Waters trips since the Bird Ecology seminars. A crew from Lakeville’s Mi5 Fitness paddled a big loop in the western BWCA. It was really a fun group and we had high water. Next week a photography seminar and another great group and we had very high water. Curtain Falls was amazing.

Since then, just local paddling and prepping for my Alaskan Expedtion. Dan Cooke helped me out with a giant mosquito netted tundra tarp. One of my pak canoes was lost by the USPS so it’s been a bit of a scramble getting everything ready to roll.

This will show our daily position and feature a short position report beginning July 15.

Last year we saw the great eight of arctic wildlife on this river: Dall Sheep, Moose, Caribou, Musk-ox, Arctic Wolves, Lynx, Wolverine and ten Grizzly Bears. Hope to top that this year this with closer views and Gray-headed Chickadees, Emperor Geese and Beluga whales.

Happy Trails-  Rob
