Stand up paddling by Spencer glacier in Alaska

With so few roads, getting around Alaska requires a bit of creativity. This was a fine idea introduced to us by our friend Jeff Hoke – a round trip that involved trains one way and a mild whitewater SUP the other way. In the middle we got to paddle around icebergs in a glacial lake. Not a bad way to spend a sunny day in Alaska!
