A Wet Farewell to the Wild – June 26
Today was our last day in the wild and we met up with SCS researcher Lauren Oates in Slocum Arm in the southern region of the West Chichagof-Yakobi Wilderness. It was their first day out in the wild and we joined them for a kayak training/safety course led by Scott Harris. I was really excited to do some underwater photography and test out Adam’s underwater housing with my camera. I geared up in a dry suite, layered with fleece and wool socks and jumped in ready to go!
The class was a blast and Scott showed the new team members how to get back into the boat if they flipped.
While the team was on break I wandered around the inlet and was shocked to find this!
Over all it was a great day and I realized that underwater filming could be a future hobby (IF DRY AND WARM)!
