Probably the most random and fun thing of the summer was buying inflatable SUP and trying them out on a few Alaskan rivers . . . the first was Portage Creek - near home, mellow, gorgeous day, and a good river to get my sister out on a packraft for her first time!
From there, we stepped it up to Placer River, accessed by the Alaska Railroad. We went with Rebecca, Tim, and Yuki in packrafts, and had a good time practicing with Yuki on the SUP for a bit more balance practice! The rapids up by the bridge were pretty fun, and we had yet another great day!!!
Overall, a fun few days of exploring with a new toy!!!
