A beautiful place and a beautiful area

A couple of years ago, my brother and I decided to raft the Denali River. My brother was a guide for the University of Alaska-Fairbanks at the time. It was really fun because it’s such a beautiful place and a beautiful area around there. It feels a lot more wild just because the water is so cold. And on Sunday, I’m leaving to go kayak the San Juan River. I love the Juan because the canyon walls are crazy. The trip itself is geology based so we are going to learn a lot about the geology of the area.
