Chacabuco Valley

Had a quick trip with my family in the Chacabuco Valley, home of the future Parque Patagonia. We were only in the valley for a few nights, but there are some interesting opportunities for short packraft trips here.

Pasayten River?

Has anyone scouted out the Pasayten River area in the North Cascades? Judging from the terrain, trail network and location there might be potential for a nice pack rafting and backpacking trip in this beautiful wilderness area. My biggest concern as I look at Google Maps is wood. Has anyone been in ...
