Wilderness Tripping - BWCA & Beyond New Topic Printer Friendly Version

  Posted by: Umnak on Aug-10-11 2:15 AM (EST)

We live less than a two hour paddle from Admiralty Island, which is a designated wilderness known for its Brown bears, mountains and spruce. We can leave from the ramp near our house and be on a beach for lunch. There will be no other people in sight, only an occasional motor vessel watching the humpbacks or a commercial fishing vessel with a net or lines out.

Still, my favorite piece of Southeast Alaska wilderness is a small island north of Admiralty with a perfect south facing beach that allows for surf landings in strong winds. Along with that beach there is a wonderful place to camp and great views of the Chilkat and Coast Ranges.
