    Sorry if you can not open the link....try Google Chrome...

    The temps were GREAT, 50-60's, but we were lucky ...in the 9 days we were there, it only rained for 15 minutes...

    A (ram) hunting group that was leaving when we arrived said it rained for 10 days before, thus givin us a lot of water. Im not sure what we would do without that water, surely a large raft would have trouble...

    Ill try to post the route.....we flew up via Wright Air in Fairbanks...

    HERE is the link to the actual route ....

    Hey Dusterdude

    I was last year on the Wind, we started approx. 15miles above Center Mountain, due to the heavy rains, we had enough water in the upper parts...IMG_0137.jpgIMG_0058.jpg...what a beautiful place!!!

    wow what an awsome area.. great pics.. thanks for sharing this...

    Whats the price tag on this trip as far as the drop off and pick up... Also this looks like a great place for a big game float hunt..
    what are the moose, caribou, sheep hunting chances?

    any advice would be appreciated... thanks

    hi, the flight from Fairbanks to drop off , then pick up to Fairbanks was $6000 for 4 people and gear. We own the rafts and gear, but of course we had to pay for airfare to Fairbanks.....
