Ive heard people say some boots are not up to "Alaska Standards". My wife and I are going to fly into CoghillLake in the PWS area and want to be prepared as possible. With no trails to speak of and what looks like a pretty wet glacial valley, can anyone give me the best boot for the job? Were plan on hiking to the nearest glacier, 4-5 miles, across what looks like a fairly open, but possibly wet valley.
Affordability is key, but I know what kind of discomfort would come from having less than capable footwear.
Thanks in advance.
