Summer season finished looking ahead into 2012.

Our summer guiding season went well. Our kayaking trips in Katmai National Park were very popular this season. We saw many bears on all of our trips in June, July and the August trip. Even the weather cooperated and we had a bit of sunshine on every trip. We also went on the Marsh Fork of the Canning River in ANWR and had 10 days of sunshine on that trip. All in all it was a great summer guiding season for us in Alaska this summer.  In early September we returned to Southern Utah to get ready for a three week mountain biking trip in the desert. We just finished this trip What a great way to end the season. Thanks everyone that booked a trip with us this summer. We are looking forward to our 2012 guiding season. Contact us now to find out what new adventures await you in 2012.

First trip of our Alaska summer season

Finally summer is here in Alaska. Bill and I are heading out tomorrow for our first trip of the season in Katmai National Park guiding a trip on the 90 mile Savonovski Loop per kayak as well as a hike into the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes.
 Looking forward to be back in this park and enjoy seeing this magnificent landscape and the bears of Katmai.

Reports and pictures of our trips will follow later this summer.
