Re: Lakina River

I was on the previously mentioned trip. A few things to mention having done the trip once before a few years earlier : When exiting the glacier onto the "Fos" it may be easier to go further up the moraine about a quarter mile or so to find an easier entrance slope than attacking the slope directly b...

Re: Lakina River

I ran the Lakina behind you guys, starting on Sunday 7/31 and finnishing 8/2, same float time as Jeff. It rained the whole time I was out and I was worried the river would be a little higher than I signed on for but it turned out to be a blast, I couldn't find a partner for my time frame so I went s...

Ruth Glacier to Talkeetna via Backside Lake

We heard that K2 Aviation is running a floatplane service to Backside Lake which is on the South side of Mt. Church at the toe of the Backside Glacier, giving access to the lower reaches of the Ruth Glacier and the Takosha Mountains, avoiding the icefall on the Ruth. Meaghan Loughlin, Chris Brehmer,...

Re: East Fork Susitna - Clearwater Mtns

6/6/11 - 6/8/11 I just did another variation on this trip with my sister and her boyfriend, we left a bike at the bridge across the Susitna, drove a truck up Valdes Creek to just before a highwater crossing and started walking. Approaching Grog Lake we encountered waist deep isothermic snow that slo...

Resurrection Creek 2011 Logjam Update

Floated Resurrection Creek from above trailhead parking lot to Hope on 5/31/11, there is one log across most of the river just above the upper closed footbridge, sneakable on the left and possibly not even an issue at the level the river was at (sixmile was slightly below action stage). The logjam s...

McCarthy to White River

During the last week in July, 2009 Meaghan Loughlin, Chris Brehmer and I traversed from McCarthy to the bridge across the White River on the Alcan. The only info we could gather about the White River was from Fast and Cold and we heard through the grapevine that a guy who teaches about glaciers at A...

Alaska Range Walk/Float Out

Okay - I know Roman has already done this trip as well as a few NPS folks, but I thought I'd write it down so it will show up on a google search for folks looking for fun things to do next season. On July 6, 2009 Kevin Wright, Meaghan Loughlin and myself were flown to the Mountain House on the Ruth ...

The travelled up Browne's Basin out of Valdez and skiied Meterorite along the way. They continued down the Cordova glacier an...
