A Trip North

Having finally completed his PhD program at Stanford University, founding director Zach Brown headed home to Alaska in the summer of 2014 — under his own power!  He hiked 1000 miles from Stanford up to Puget Sound, then kayaked another 1300 miles up the Inside Passage to the Inian Islands.  It took more than 4 months and was filled with wild sights and unforgettable people.  The goal of this adventure?  Spread the word about Inian Islands Institute and search for that visionary donor who can help us make this dream a reality!

Check out the journal postings from Zach’s trek and the map of his journey up America’s west coast!

The Route!
