Alsek River thru Turnback Canyon TR

Now that High Sierra season is over, thought I'd put out some cold weather stoke from last fall around this time. As it turns out, you can still go kayaking when it's less than 100 degrees out. And you don't even need mules!

Also, I've historically talked a lot of $hit on the Buzz about how great the paddling is in Alaska. Here I provide photographic evidence:

Happy fall!

Awesome Xavier! Great adventure.

I love the following quote from your piece.

"kayaking is just the search for the toughest obstacle course between you and the take out beers"

Well said!

The blackadar story is incredible as well. Never Turn Back was a good read.

Old friend? Let's just say that I have "experienced" the chaos that is Jon Combs. Actually, I grew up skiing and boating Idaho's rivers with Jon.
