‘I’m really going to do it’

Oregon man treks through rugged Brooks Range
Dave Metz’s dogs Jimmy and Will walk along the Noatak River in Alaska’s Brooks Ridge. Metz, a biologist with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, hiked more than 1,200 miles along the length of the rugged northern Alaska range in three segments between 2007 and 2012. It took a lot of bushwhacking, and he encountered a grizzly bear and a pack of wolves along the way.
Dave Metz passed Kalurivik Creek in April 2007 on the first leg of his journey. He once went 50 days without seeing another person.
Ulaneak Creek and the Ambler River join together in Alaska’s Brooks Range. Dave Metz hiked the length of the range and published a book, Crossing the Gates of Alaska about part of the trip.
