Imre stopped in Kaltag and again he spent about an hour and a half on the beach, without turning off his Spot device. This is a new “habit”, and we are wondering what the goal of these not-too-long but not-too-short stops might be.
After Kaltag Imre passed Big Eightmile Island, and you shouldn’t have to have read yesterday’s post to figure out how far the island is from the village.
Salmon is in season, and according to The Book, for the next 5-6 days (until reaching Russian Mission) a paddler should see at least 5 black bears each day. So far, Imre always tried to put up his tent on islands – now he will absolutely have to do so.
The pictures are still from the first package he had sent to us, taken on the first week of his trip. We are expecting to receive the second set any day now.
Wonderful history lessons are being experienced by Imre as he travels the Yukon River and witnessing the beauty and breathless scenes.
