Grand Canyon of the Stikine, Yukon
Howdy! I'm going up to Alaska at the end of August to run the Tatshenshini (class III/float). However, doing some research, it looks like it wouldn't be too far out of the way to go fire up the Grand Canyon of the Stikine. This would also be at an easier water level to run this (August-Sept being non-highwater). It is a class V+ big water run. One of the classics on the North American Continent.
So, I may go look to fire it up either on the drive up to Alaska in mid-August, or on the way back in early September.
Just an idea at this point, though I'm starting to do the research on it. Anyone here run it? Know anyone who's run it? Anyone want to run it with me?
Thought I'd drop the line to all of you buzzards a few months before the trip to see what info I can find.
I will be driving my station wagon from Colorado to Haines, AK for the Tatshenshini trip, so I could carry a boat for someone up there potentially.
