Only 50% of the citizens in Bethel have a car, but more probably have a boat? 3 weeks after selling my Subaru, we added a small boat to our vehicle list. After months of driving the~16 miles of road. Tom enjoyed our 120 mile round trip to the Kilbuck Mountains. You can travel miles on the rivers, but they are shallow and contain a lot of sand bars. So we have a jet pump motor instead of a prop. (Tom has more details) The dogs loved our Labor day weekend trip.
We caught rainbow trout, grayling and shot 2 green winged teal. I also picked more giant blueberries. On the next trip we are going to camp overnight. In spite of the fact that we saw HUGE Grizzly tracks. Tom assured me these bears are more wary of humans here because they are hunted heavily?????
