Postcard from Alaska - Sunshine and a Glacier

NVR Guys

Since our last post was all doom and gloom, we wanted to let you know that we remodeled our plans and found some hiking-friendly weather. We made our way down to Wrangall-St. Elias National Park. Here is a photo of the region.

We stayed on the Copper River, which is famous for one of the most hyped salmon runs in the world (about two million use the river each year for spawning.)  Salmon activity also means bear activity.

What we weren't expecting is that mid-August brings autumn to the region. The aspen trees are turning a gorgeous gold and oranges and crimsons are popping up. Snow will arrive next month, and it will stick by October.

Speaking of snow, we made a trip down towards Valdez to check out Worthington Glacier – one of the most accessible in Alaska. It's located near Thompson Pass, known as the snowiest place in the state.

We have now moved on to the Kenai Peninsula and are about to take off on a backcountry adventure (rain or shine) to to a remote lakeside cabin.

More once we get to the other side of this adventure.
