As we bring 2019 to a close, we went through our photos from the season, and wanted to share our favorites! This summer will go down in the books for many reasons – lots of sunshine, fun adventures, and amazing memories of exploring Wrangell-St. Elias! Thanks to all who joined us on a trip, and keep on adventuring!
