Here in the driest state in the USA we don’t have too many floods. A few flashy ones now and then but they come and go in a blur. Spring in AK, or breakup as it’s called, always brings standing water to the valleys as it rushes out of the mountains and melts from the sometimes huge snowbanks. These meltdowns lead to a variety of opportunities for the locals, most of whom decide to thrash their 4-wheel drive rigs.
An epic puddle formed near my moms house and we saw the opportunity to canoe through the forest like Amazonia’s, National Geographic take that. If only we had been spear hunting as well!
It was other-worldly traveling above the forest floor in 5-10′ of water. Above all the sticker bushes and devils club.
As usual when Maggie is involved, everyone wanted to join in the fun! Trend setters.
