The Final Slog

The Final Slog

Sep 06

The final 3 days of our Lost Coast trek weren’t on the coast at all actually. From the west side of Controller Bay we headed inland, through Softuk Lagoon and finally up the gigantic Copper River Delta. For the next 3 days we worked our way through marsh, thick brush and up the heavily braided Copper River.
