Twelve students and three instructors backpacked in the Talkeetna Mountains for 28 days. That is 28 days without the luxury of showers, toilet paper, or electronics. Twenty-eight days at the mercy of the beautiful and rugged Alaskan wilderness. We carried all of our possessions on our backs with our packs weighing around 45 pounds. My expedition group saw grizzlies, caribou, and herds of dall sheep. We crossed rivers and trekked through snow, tundra, boulders, mud, and scree. We endured rain, sleet, snow, and navigated with compasses and maps-- even in fog white outs. We smelled bad, looked dirty, and had fun. And It was by far the best time of my life.
