Virtual Trip - Upper Base Camp - Kanektok River with Dave Duncan and Sons - Alaska

Five boats caravan to the Upper Base Camp.


Larry, Rankin and Mojo get ready for their boat ride to camp.

The guides load our bags into the boats.
Upon landing at Quinhagak airfield, we were met by Clint and Brad Duncan and their guide crew. All the bags were loaded into boats - not necessarily the boat you were in, but we were all going to the same place. It's a long boat ride - almost 2 hours - to the upper base camp. We did make one stop about halfway to fill up with gas - and a very quick leg stretch stop. Then it was back on the river. These jet boats are very maneuverable which makes for a "Disneyland like" ride up the river. It was rather fun as they zigged and zagged up the winding river.

It didn't rain on us, but it sure looked like it wanted to. We all had our raingear on just in case.
