Glacier Creek Whitewater Rafting

Tuesday as part of my training with Alaska Backcountry Access owner Andy Morrison took Jess and me along with guides Opie and Ashley on a hike down to Glacier Creek where we inflated two whitewater rafts and set in below the Winner Creek hand tram.  This time of year the water level is low so we took our time to scout lines and cut a tree that was blocking the river.  The weather was perfect and the scenery vintage Alaska.  I brought along my Active-i sunglasses and recorded a super choppy time-lapse video to give you a taste of the experience.

    Your trip looks amazing, and that loft you mentioned a few posts back is calling my name! I doubt we can actually make it out there this summer, but if there is a window of opportunity, we’ll take it. At least I can live vicariously through your blog. Brooke and I are heading out to Cape Hatteras tomorrow for a full week. I’ll be surf fishing most of the time. Last year we caught a ton of fish, then ate them. It was great! Last weekend we spent a few days in the NC mountains were we took a couple small hikes with Connor sitting high on my back. He seemed to really enjoy the hikes and just being outdoors. I hope all is well and life is good….it sure looks that way.

    Scott and Jess. The raft trip looks like lots of fun, absolutely no end to the opportunities for adventure and fresh-air in AK.

    Your post called the trip “training” sounds like you may have your foot in the “back country guiding door”. Are the river trips day-trips or are there overnight trips as well?

    Jan and I are sure enjoying your photo’s and experiences.

    Cheers!
