This river was just one of several that Mik and Tucker have been exploring in the Alaska Range. 32 degree water, 40 degree ambient temperature, rain and incessant bugs are the rule. This was the first time that these guys wore drysuits. Usually  the descents were done in polypro and raingear with a certain level of suffering only mountaineers can love.
