IDAHO ALPINE CLUB GENERAL MEETING

"THE ARCTIC NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE"

WEDNESDAY, February 7, 2018 @ 7:00 PM
DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
555 WEST 25TH ST


Stretching from the Brooks Range to the Arctic Ocean, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge occupies a chunk of geography about the size of South Caroline in the northeastern corner of Alaska. The largest wildlife refuge in the US, it's a good place to be if you are interested in observing Dall sheep, caribou, musk oxen, wolves and bears.

Trevor Deighton with three friends visited the refuge in the Fall of 2016, carrying 70 lb packs over 11 or 12 days, hiking 80 miles and pack rafting 120 miles north to the Arctic Ocean. They returned the following summer and spent an additional couple of weeks exploring a different area of the refuge, this time during the summer solstice under the midnight sun. Except for the start and end of their trips, Trevor's group spent days trekking through the vast, pristine valleys and plains of the refuge without seeing a single other person.

Come and enjoy Trevor's images and videos of his ambitious trips to this exciting and remote area.

The meeting is open to the public and all outdoor enthusiasts are invited to attend.

Road biking routes in southeastern Idaho ranging from 20-25 miles up to about 50 mile alternatives have been developed by Barb Brown, Judy Williams, Gay Gilbert, and others over the past 17 years for use by a weekly Tuesday morning riding group. Mapman Alan Crockett (and protégé Jeb Blakeley) have improved the early rough schematics using GPS hardware and DeLorme software.
