Erin McKittrick and Bretwood Higman have made it to Port Alsworth. They survived another couple of a hundred winter miles of trekking through tough territory. They even survived being bombed with pizza by a plane in Lake Clark Pass.
They've finally gotten in a lot of skiing, sometimes in crazy conditions. erin:
" How do you travel down a sheet of glare ice with several inches of standing water on top in a strong tailwind? Easy. Just stand on your skis. How do you stop? Another matter altogether."
She makes some apt observations on possible coal mining in the Chuitna Basin. And the pictures, as usual, are great.
If you're new to reading Progressive Alaska and are unaware of erin and hig's great adventure, you're in for a treat!
