Brooks Range two years in a row is getting me giddy. Spring has arrived up in southern Alaska, while northern part is in single digits with blizzard warnings. I plan on taking a similar route as last year with optional alternates. Atleast 300-500 miles will be different. I will be hiking with a friend I first met on the Appalachian Trail. Kept in touch and 2 years later ran into each other on the Continental Divide Trail. This year, I am planning on ending my trip in Kotzebue. My whole route will be around 900 miles. I plan on starting around June 20th.
