Brendon Seaholser was such an interesting interview because of
his honest and blunt demeanor, as well as his love of the park and
adventures of all kind.
During this interview, we talk about what brought him to
Wrangell St. Elias, one of the month desolate and isolated parks in
the country, a story which starts in Vermont, and winds through
We also talk about how unbelievably vast the Park is, and the
