Well it's here! 2009 has been kicked off and our first group of the year is enjoying perfect weather, few bugs, and incredible solitude as they hike and explore Turquoise Lake. Aaron is holding down the show in Anchorage and I'm out at Lake Clark gearing up, packing food for trips, and generally taking in the beauty of this magical place - a place I never tire of. Lake Clark continues to astound me, and each time I fly through the "pass" memories of adventures gone by flood my consciousness. We are truly fortunate to be able to work and play in such a magnificent place! Let the season begin.
