Just an update from last weekends activities. We took a load of supplies into the lodge, and spent some time looking for bears. We scouted up Windy Creek, Valdez Creek, down by the Big Su and Clearwaters. There has been no movement of bears as of yet, even though the temps have been in the 40's during the day. I expect any day those critters are going to break out of thier dens, and start looking for breakfast! The snow is holding on well, and the ride in from Cantwell was excellent! The DOT has already plowed in 7 to 10 miles and they have large area plowed to park at that point. They told me last week they will start opening the highway up starting on April 15th. I don't know how far they will get by the weekend, but I can't wait to be able to drive supplies in! Hauling all the supplies in 63 miles on sleds is arduous to say the least! If anyone is out and about up there, I would sure like an update on the plowing and how far they get by Friday.
Snow is holding on well, and the riding is great in from Cantwell to 68. I expect it to be rideable until mid May, depending on how the temps go of course.
Good Luck and Good Shooting!
