May 1st!

With summer fast approaching, and trips scheduled for just over a month from now, the official pre-season prep has begun. No matter how much you accomplish over the winter, there are always endless lists in the weeks leading up to the first trip.

We have ventured back to Port Alsworth to finish the guide shack, and prepare the house for our clients and guides. In the new guide shack, we will be installing the windows and door, and running a bit of wire for lights and outlets, and moving in furniture. After that, we'll call it good for the season. Back in the main house, it's into the food room to organize freezers, fill dry goods containers and take a final inventory.

We will return in just over a month for the first trip of the season, our Turquoise Lake Basecamp. Nestled in the heart of the park is Turquoise Lake, where we will establish a comfortable basecamp. From there, the hiking possibilities are endless. What a fantastic way to start the season!

We are looking forward to another great summer; grab your pack, lace up your boots, and join us for a true Alaskan wilderness adventure!
