Kayakers paddle north through Inside Passage

Three long distance kayakers are making their way north through the waters of the Inside Passage this summer. This month the trio stopped in Ketchikan, Wrangell and Petersburg and are heading to Juneau and beyond. Sonya Baumstein of Orlando, Florida, Jay Godfrey of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and Michal Wyganowski of Poland have been paddling and sailing as a group since the three met up in Prince Rupert. Godfrey and Wyganowski plan to head to Glacier Bay while Baumstein is headed to Skagway. Joe Viechnicki spoke with them about the journey, with Godfrey starting off by explaining the earlier part of the trip.
