Be Safe Out There
In Alaska it does not take much to get into true wilderness. Sometimes it even comes to us! With the wilderness, there are certain risks that we don't usually deal with in our "civilized" world. Below are links to more information on some of these risks. What we experience out there can become either grand moments of wonder and excitement, or your worst nightmare, depending on what you know and how you handle the situation. Please, when in the wilds of Alaska, play it safe!
