November 27, 2018 - Misty Fjords

Misty Fjords National Monument lies east of Ketchikan in Southeast Alaska. Charlie and Melda Montgomery, club members from Oregon, put together a trip around Revillagigedo Island. Ketchikan is on Revillagigedo and, because he grew up there, it had long been Charlie's desire to do a trip around the island. Five other club members joined them a week into their circumnavigation, on the edge of and going into Misty Fjords National Monument. Presented by SSKC member, Eric Matson.

On September 1st through 4th, 2017 Oskar Hinz led a SSKC trip to Diablo and Ross Lakes in North Cascades National Park. Come hear SSKC member Norm Nielson recount their adventures among glacier-covered peaks and waterfalls plunging directly into the lakes. This is a highly recommended and spectacular trip not too far from home.

Join us for the latest trip with Geezer Kayaking Expeditions as they explore the Alexander Archipelago. This time they toured around Kupreanof Island in Southeast Alaska.

January, 2019 - The Annual Trip-Planning Party

No, it's not a meeting as such - but it is probably the club's most important event of the year: our annual trip planning party. Know of a spectacular vista? Have an idea for a fun, community-oriented paddle? Want to share your favorite rock garden? Just want to learn more about what's involved in leading a trip? Come! Have pizza with us! Urban Duwamish explorer, Olympic Peninsula surfer, Friday Harbor daytripper, or hardcore WWTA trekker - it doesn't matter. We need all levels of participation, and would love for you to come. See the newsletter for details!
