This route begins at Granite Creek, across the Tana Glacier to Iceberg Lake then on to Bremner and all the way to Tebay Lake. This is a long, difficult and challenging route but for the experienced and prepared adventurer, truly the trip of a lifetime.

We traveled all over the state of Alaska – from Coldfoot in the Brooks Range to Resurrection Bay – to experience the outdoors and see the people that make up our state. Over 150 people participated this year, in order to see the Alaska that tourists never do. Our programs depends on a number of individuals to make it work. Your assistance throughout the summer helped make these trips happen allowed me to look after the participants without having to worry about travel. Unfortunately I do not remember all of you staff that helped us each time we breezed into town – I do remember though that they were all very professional and personable. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to you and your staff for donating your time and energy to helping these trip happen..
