A few days ago, we wrapped up our 2020 summer season and the Wrangell Mountains helped us celebrate with beautiful fall foliage and fresh-fallen snow on the peaks! We can’t think of a better place to spend the summer and couldn’t be happier with all the adventures that were had. Now that things have quieted down, we’ve spent some time going through our photos from the season and wanted to share some of our favorite memories with you! Thanks to all who joined us on a trip, and keep on adventuring!
