Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club General Membership Meeting–Rafting the Remote and Wild Alsek River
October 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Outdoor enthusiasts Bill and Debbie Pierce recount their 12 day raft trip on the Alsek River. Considered by some to be one of the wildest and most magnificent whitewater raft trips in North America, the Alsek flows from the Yukon to the Gulf of Alaska, through the world’s largest non-polar ice cap and is renowned for big rapids, tall mountains, dramatic valleys and glaciers, ice filled glacial lakes and grizzly bears. With a 160 mile run and fewer than 150 people rafting its full length each year, the Alsek is on the top of many people’s bucket list. A helicopter portage over the Turnback Canyon only adds to the adventure! Come see the photographs and hear the stories of this incredible place!
