Life on Ice

We’re headed off in a few days for 2 months exploring Malaspina Glacier with our two little kids:

We’ll be using our big red double duck to paddle some rivers that are only recently emerging from under ice, so I think we can claim to be the first to descend them.

And of course the usual packraft uses… a bed, a bathtub, a place to hide if our tent gets flattened by hurricane force winds. If fair weather and addled mind combine I might even bounce out among the boulders on the coastal moraine.
