Photo of the Day: Pack-Raft Alaska

Filed under: Water 

Kyle Bock snagged this shot on the banks of the Chitina River in Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska. The red boat, a packraft made by Alpacka, is a solo vessel that can handle deep wilderness paddles, flat lakes and whitewater — and it packs small enough to fit in the bottom of a backpack for transport when the water runs out. (See GearJunkie’s pack raft review article.) Makes us want to get in and paddle away. . .
