paddling and hiking Alaska mid-winter

My favourite travelogue over the past few months has been Erin McKittrick and Bretwood (Hig) Higman’s Journey on the Wild Coast:

“From the Puget Sound to the Bering Sea: Four thousand miles along the edge of the Pacific, by foot, raft, and skis.”

After 8 months, they are only half way finished. (The original plan was 9 months for the entire 4000mi.)

The text and photos are terrific. But it was this video that really brought home to me the difficulty of travelling Alaska in winter.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

It’s well worth checking out Erin’s post: Midway Reflections
