Our helicopter sitting at the picturesque Eagle airstrip.

Now that you all know a bit about me from my first post, I’ll give you a description of my favorite day from my first patrol. From June 6th-12th, I was stationed out of the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve headquarters in Eagle, Alaska.

Here is our boat, tied up at the launch at Eagle. The bluff towers over the tiny village.

On my second patrol, June 18th-26th, my supervisor, Josh, and I embarked on a motorboat trip up and down the section of the Yukon River that lies within Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve.

Nothing inspires a person to conserve the earth’s beauty more than spending time in true wilderness. Josh, my supervisor, and I just returned from a ten-day off-trail backpacking trip through the upland wilderness of Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve in eastern Interior Alaska. We traveled by bush plane, landing on tall grass in an area near Copper Mountain and the upper Charley River.

Hello! I’m Greg, from Dallas, Texas, and I’m working as a Photo Media Intern for Alaska’s Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve this summer. I’m based out of Fairbanks, but I fly to the preserve, located in the eastern Alaskan Interior, for each of my four ten-day-or-so backcountry patrols.

Yes, I know that’s a long way to travel just for a summer internship.
