Re: Kayaking & Packrafting in Alaska
Thanks for posting this video. Brought back some memories.
I didn't listen to the sound so you made have mentioned sweepers and Bald Eagles.
Back in the mid 70's, my boss, his wife, and I did this on a raft while a co-worker had a kayak. A short while after we hit the water we came to an island, my boss asked his wife which side of the island to go. She didn't answer and I didn't know anything about rafting so no decision was made. One of those trees overhanging the water (sweepers) took me right out of the raft and into that cold glacier water. I was dressed in wool pants and such and was soaked the rest of the day. Fortunately, the weather looked like yours and I don't remember being cold. Thank good I had a good mae west on though.
The other thing I remember was seeing large numbers of Bald Eagles. Something that back in the 70's I had never seen.
Great day, great trip, great memories.
