Dall River Trip
The Dall River trip was a working trip for the Park Ranger Patrol to assess usage of the area. The Fisheries section of the Ministry was also along to assess the river.
We flew out of Muncho Lake Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada, and landed 150 km in the heart of the Northern Rocky Mountains at Dall Lake in Denetiah Provinical Park. We camped there and then headed to the river the next morning. The most exciting section was a straight hour and half section of Class 2 and Class 3 whitewater. From the Dall, we entered the Turnagain River and got picked up by a float plane at the Guide Outfitter camp at the junction with Sandpile Creek. The trip was about 80Km in total. The SOAR worked great, easy to paddle and handle. They also carried all the gear with no problem. We had 2 S14s and 2 S16s.
