    Default Lower Kuskulana River Canyon, Chitna & Copper River Trip

    A less than enjoyable put in but a great and rarely ran road to road trip.
    Enjoy!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I needed a river fix. Haha. I hope u had cold ones for your put-in crew after that struggle down the hill.

    How long was that trip (float time and shuttle)? I've driven to McCarthy but have forgotten the time between takeout and put-in.

    Great video as always

    The trip was about 8-9 hours total. The headwind encountered added another hour for sure and maybe two. The put-in bridge is at mile 17.

    Cool day trip, thanks for posting the footage. The wind can really work you on the Copper.

    Great big wide open river, and you drive straight into the only rock there at 2:25
