Late June, 2011, I joined Eric Parsons, Dylan Kentch, Doom Fishfinder, and Roman Dial for a tour of SE AK.
We beach biked out of Yakutat and bear trail bumbled along Alaska's outer coast, then trailless stumbling and ocean paddling brought us into Glacier Bay.
We carried all gear and food from the start, drinking from fresh and glacial streams, cooking in driftwood fires, sleeping just above high tide.
