Paddling the Noatak River
Two summers ago one of our members who thought he was too old for far north wilderness canoe paddling found otherwise. His daughter and son-in-law persuaded him to take several weeks to paddle down a river known especially for its high concentration of grizzly bears. Having paddled many far north rivers over the years and never having seen a grizzly bear along the way, Tim Johnson was easily persuaded. Using GoPro movie and a zoom digital point-and-shoot cameras, they kept a record of their journey down the Noatak River from near its source in the Brooks Range Gates of the Arctic National Park down to the native village of Noatak not too far from the Chukchi Sea. Upon his return Tim learned that fellow Ikes, Darby & Geri Nelson had paddled the same route earlier with their children and a young grandchild. Come see and hear their stories at next month’s Social/Ed meeting.
Thank you to local photographer Marlene Sternberger who has given us permission to post some of her wildlife photographs. All ohif them were taken in the Coon Rapids Dam area in Brooklyn Park.
