Lost Paddle Glacer/Twenty Mile River

Post by alaskariverguy » Tue Jun 10, 2014 6:11 am

On Weds we lost a paddle on Glacier above the confluence with twenty mile. If you find one I would happy to pay a finders fee.

Thanks,

Steve

Hey Steve,
Sorry about your paddle. I was considering the winner creek/twenty mile loop this coming weekend but being from out of state have I no idea if this is reasonable given snow/trail conditions. As you were in the area or may know other local packrafters, do you have any insight you could share?
Thanks
Mike

Not sure on the trail. We did that last year lots lots lots of bear scat on trail but didn't see any bears. You might find some snow up near berry pass. Couple of scketchy slope crossings. Be sure to bring ice ax or something to arrest with.

After I posted that I saw that we got fresh snow up in the mountains here in Eagle River today. Good change you will come across snow on that hike especially on the shady slopes.
