understated obstacles. ..
on December 21, 2015
This book is essential and helpful if you do not have experience in a specific region of the park.
Just be forewarned, the scale in Alaska is different. The descriptions in this book are, on occasion, profoundly understated. Similarly, some of the described estimated route times are unrealistically short, and we happen to be, "hearty", as they say in McCarthy.
Some crossings should not be done. Some obstacles cannot be avoided and you better not even vaguely overestimate your capabilities.
That said, my wife and I have had unbelievable amounts of fun for up to two weeks at a time in the park. Your life will be different and better if you are lucky enough to wander here.
Lastly, The GPS coordinates of some points listed are incorrect. Looks like probably typing errors? As usual, it's always best to just plot your own and use the map & compass.
