Adventuring in Alaska part 1

I have a friend named Dave. Dave had become one of my favorite and trustworthy adventure buddies over the years and almost a year ago we lost Dave to brain cancer. I’ve shared many adventures with Dave, including canyoneering routes all over SoCal, hiking as much as possible, climbing from Joshua Tree to our epic in the Angeles Forest, and even swimming class 3+ rapids with him after our ducky flipped in a rapid on the Kern. He was always up for adventure and went out there and pursued it on the regular and has been an inspiration to me over the years. When I heard that his sister Dawn was planning a trip to Alaska in his honor and would include all the things Dave had wanted to do for years it didn’t take much convincing for me to hop on board and join the festivities. Adventure for those who can’t. Adventure for those who aren’t with us anymore. Adventure for Dave.
