I’ll start out by saying that this was one of the most epic trips that I have ever been on, let alone was fortunate enough to guide! Thanks to two amazing paddlers, kindred spirits and expedition companions, Brandt and Antony! Epic, by definition, is heroic, majestic, impressively great, spectacular, awesome, of unusually great extent. I’d say that these are all accurate descriptors of this 9-day kayak expedition. Let me share some of the highlights with you. . .
Day 1: We started our journey about 40 miles west of Valdez, in beautiful sunshine, at Miners Bay, in Unakwik Inlet. We paddled a whopping 2 miles, hiked up a river to check out Miners Lake, and stopped for some kayak fishing.
