Looking for some information on the condition of the Alatna/ Noatak Rivers and the mountian passes between?

Thanks

Recently made the trip from Anaktuvuk Pass, down the John and up the Wolverine to Alatna. All passes are open and water at good levels. The rivers were high in mid-June because of the late spring conditions but all should be good now. Any amount of rain will swell the river rapidly due to permafrost. Make sure your camps are high if there is any chance of precipitation.
