Rafting down the Tatshenshini & Alsek Rivers

The Rafts

Five rafts took us down the river. Each carried four guests, one guide who rowed, our personal gear and one-fifth of common wares: food (yum!) and drink in, trash and unmentionables out. We can still feel water around our rubber boots!

    
    

Rowing the River

The afternoon we put into the river had the scariest section. No cameras. Too busy bailing!
Someone is still bailing as we stop!

     

Then it was serene, but not without its currents, rocks, adventures, from then on.
