Joe took my husband & I and our two boys (11 and 14) on a hike to the most spectacular spot between the Alaska Range and the Talkeetna Range. His knowledge of the wildlife and all the flowers was incredible. He got so excited when we found bear mounds near a known caribou path. Wish I’d gotten a video of him explaining how they go after the artic ground squirrels. Tim joined us the next day as the guide for our 3 day float beginning on the Chulitna River. He and Joe were fantastic hosts. We got to fish, camp, and have a blast on the river. We lucked out with picture perfect weather and saw a black bear, golden eagle, and several bald eagles. The last day we were within 20 feet of one perched on a fallen tree. Everyone was quiet so as not to disturb him. Couldn’t get a picture, but that experience will never be forgotten. We’re already thinking of when we can get back. I’d love to have more time with Mollie and improve on my photography skills.
