Packrafting the Donjek

For years I have avoided "popular" Yukon hikes and rivers on general principles.
However, sometimes trips are popular for a very good reason.

Such is the case with the Donjek loop in Kluane National Park.
Its an ~8-ish day or less hiking route involving a hike into the Donek river via Hoge pass, then up the Donjek, and over a number of different pass options to the Duke river and out to the Alaska highway.
Packrafting the Donjek has become quite popular recently, and our good friend Paul Burbidge convinced us to join him and his wife and others for a "family" trip on the Canada Day long weekend.
It was great.
