On Monday, October 28, Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club members Bill and Debbie Pierce will recount their current 12-day raft trip taken on the Alsek River.
Thought of by some to be 1 of the wildest and most magnificent whitewater raft trips in North America, the Alsek flows from the Yukon to the Gulf of Alaska, by way of the world’s biggest non-polar ice cap. This location is renowned for massive rapids, tall mountains, dramatic valleys and glaciers, ice-filled glacial lakes and grizzly bears.
Spectacular visuals and rapids aside, the Alsek tends to make the top rated of numerous people’s bucket lists with its 160-mile run. Fewer than 150 individuals raft the complete length of the river each and every year. A helicopter portage more than the Turnback Canyon only adds to the adventure.
Bill and Debbie will share pictures and stories of their current trip at Mountain Gear Corporate (6021 E. Mansfield Ave, Spokane Valley, WA) on the evening of the 28th. This presentation is absolutely free and will take location from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Come geared with queries to strategy for your personal rafting excursion!
