Barry Whitehill will present “205 Years go 205 Miles”, an account of a trip that he, his wife Patti, and a friend ( with combined 205 year of age) took from the Dalton Highway to Hughes by going down the South Fork of Bonanza Creek to Fish Creek to the South Fork of the Koyukuk to the Koyukuk. His presentation promises a great mix of images ranging from outstanding wildlife shots to Gold Rush relics to Pleistocene relics to Koyukon Village/fish camp life.
Anchorage based packrafter Dirk Sisson and his trip partner Steve Bergt will describe a close call on the Kongakut River last summer, and share some of the safety lessons he took away from an intimate aufeis encounter.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Drawings will be held for club merchandise “door” prizes.
