Climbing Mountains Running Rivers

After I got home to Fairbanks in May, I took a short walk in Denali National Park with some friends in search of a wolverine den. We wanted to take some pictures of the wolverine, if possible, but after climbing to the top of a mountain we couldn't find him. There were plenty of DalI sheep, though, and I took plenty of pictures of them - probably 25 ewes and lambs altogether. We also came across a hoary marmot which we photographed.

Not long afterward I took a hike with a friend of mine, Dave Boyd, back to some land I have next to Denali National Park. We walked 30 miles in two days across some pretty rough country, which made it a very quick and rigorous trip.

In mid June I attended a Y2K workshop in San Francisco where I learned all about the Y2K problem. I also visited with my son and daughter while I was there. It was good to see them and my three grandchildren again.

My next adventure was in late June when I took a 300 mile long canoe trip down the Alatna River with my son Steven and Andrew Benedetti. Along the route we stopped at the Arrigetch Peaks and climbed in the mountains and glaciers in the area for three days. It was there where I fell from a tree and broke my collarbone while trying to hang our food away from the grizzly bears. A little farther down the river we stopped to camp on Takahula Lake and climb Takahula Mountain. We also visited for two days with some friends.of mine who have a small wilderness cabin on the lake. The next day we continued our trip down to the Indian village of Allakaket, which we reached in four days. We camped near the village for a day before heading home by mail plane.

After returning to Fairbanks, I worked on my house for a couple of Weeks and prepared for the arrival of my mother and two nephews who were scheduled for a two visit at the end of July. While they were in Alaska, I took my nephews and and son Steven all over the place, mountain climbing, canoeing, glacier climbing, and hiking. After they left for their homes in Canada, I prepared to come back out to Marshall again.
