Lake Clark National Park – exploration on SUP

Bobby and I decided to take his plane out to Lake Clark to use our new SUPs and explore a little . . . we found some stunning country, plentiful ideas for future trips, a little adrenaline, some peace and tranquility, and had a great trip overall 🙂

Cook Inlet mud flats from the air – super awesome!

 

Twin Lakes – we had hoped to land here, but the only cub strip we could find was not suitable for the winds we had

 

Idyllic Port Allsworth

 

SUP exploring on Lake Kontrashibuna – about 3-4 mi from town up a super nice trail, with Tanalian Falls on the way!
Idyllic sunny day SUPping!
After our lake SUP, we decided to head down Tanalian River to Lake Clark . . . some folks had told us that “the kids raft it every summer” so we figured, how bad could it be?!?
Tanalian Falls – hence the portage 🙂
Nearing Lake Clark, after the “harrowing” section of Tanalian River – glad to know we made it through alive!!

 

Headed for the lake, calm enough to stop for pictures!
Whew!  Relief 🙂
Happily lake-side, adding the larger fin for flatwater efficiency

 

We flew over Tanalian River the next day – I think this was the roughest bit – a little intense for our 3rd time on SUP!!

 

Overview of Tanalian River – such a cool day!

 

Next stop: Telaquana Lake

 

We hiked a few miles upriver to SUP down Telaquana River down to the lake

Me headed down Telaquana River

 

Me on Telaquana Lake – super beautiful night – we totally nailed the weather!

 

Our super beautiful camp site!  Was a great place for a big fire later that night 🙂

 

View of the section of Telaquana River that we SUPped, as well as our flight path toward home – stunning area!

 

Tordrillo views did not suck!
Looking down on the Triumverate Glacier – badass!!!
