Update May 26, 2013 - Cantwell, Alaska

Time for an update, sorry I have been remiss, have been busy since my 3 days off and return from Anchorage. Did quite a bit of shopping down there and stocked up on supplies which should hold me for the next 45 days or so...I will eat well anyway!

Drive back was uneventful, Denali was shrouded in clouds and they were not even pretty clouds to get a decent picture, so just made the drive with no real stops.

Since returning, spring has sprung with a vengeance...bright clear blue sky warm days and ice and snow disapperaing rapidly. This is a good thing, the river at the river camp is nearly clear and we hope to get the air boat in the water this week to do some exploring, we are waiting for some ice to break up in a canyon up river from us, we hope to see some big chunks of ice coming down the river any time now, which will indicate it is breaking up, once that happens we will hopefully be good to go. Just need to see how much damage to the river was done during last falls big flood, hopefully it opened up some shallow areas...we should know this week, I am anxious to get running.

On the way to the river camp the other morning, I saw this nice big Cow Moose beside the highway.

Took a few pics today at the river camp....

All in all things are going very well, weather is amazing and beautiful scenery everywhere you look!

Stay tuned the big adventure on the river will be soon!
