Hey Folks,

Wow, November is here already. Here’s an image from our Canning River Rafting trip in the ANWR this past summer. This year we took group of 6 people out in the refuge for 12 days, with 2 rafts, tons of food and we all had a blast. Fun trip, a great mix of people, and nice weather.

And because I didn’t get a chance to keep up with the blog too much this past summer (it’s many, many long stories), I’ll add a couple images from this trip for you here as well. Be sure to click the images to see a larger view.

The Marsh Fork is such a beautiful section of river, that gorgeous turquoise water is SO inviting.

And it’s not all about the river. We stepped out on shore for some nice hikes in the mountains and across the coastal plain as well. Always a treat. This year we saw a pack of wolves, some caribou, 2 snowy owls and a grizzly bear. All were a treat but a pack of wolves 50 yards away from the boat as we came around the corner was a highlight for me.

A nice hike in the mountains late one evening was a treat as well.

Still finalizing our dates for 2018, and have space available. Drop me a note if you’re interested.

Cheers
Carl
