We scurried out of our tents and sleeping luggage and rowed out in the course of Lake Alsek floating amongst the ice bergs with the waves of inexperienced lights dancing throughout us. It was a magical night time. Listening to this episode undoubtedly peaked my curiosity for a winter go to. I’ll begin working towards my “Gee!” and Haw!”
