Drove to Toolik Field Station with Eamon Oregan, Nia (my dog), Bailey and Scout (their dogs) to meet his wife, Anja Kade. We then drove back south to the Yager R. Valley to start our hike. We hiked about 2 days to get to the Itkillik River, going over a 5,000 ft pass. We then floated for about 2 days and hiked out on the 5th day. Anja stayed at Toolik to work and Eamon and I made the 8 hr or so drive back to Fairbanks that same day after hiking out some 8 miles. Whew!! Awesome trip. Some rain, some sun and wind to our backs on the river. Lots of fun. Thanks Eamon and Anja!! Nia had a great time too!
