If you have ever wondered how to pronounce the Dena'ina trail names we have underneath the english name we have a resource for you; The Kenai Dena'ina Language Home Page. The site has a lot of sound files imbedded and you can hear real native speakers. Several of our trail names are listed under the vocabulary tab. The web site is a work in progress and works better on Firefox or Chrome than it does on Internet Explorer. It works even better on Safari. The website is maintained by Alan Boraas, one of Tsalteshi's founding fathers.
Due to flooding in Seward the Region 3 Cross-Country Running Championship has been moved to Tsalteshi! This event will take place Saturday, September 22. The Wolverine Trailhead and trail will be closed until 7pm. If you would like to come watch please park in the Sports Center parking lot and cross K-Beach road on foot. We apologize for any inconvenience. Can't live without a day at Tsalteshi? Join the Step out to Stop Diabetes fun run at the Skyview Trailhead. Registration starts at 9am. This year's event will be a mud run so bring shoes with good traction and a can do attitude!
We had an ambitious trail user help us out by creating a new Tsalteshi map that includes the squirrel, the new trail, and the psycocross add-ons. Thanks! He is also lobbying for "no-see-um" as the new trail name by putting it on the map and coming up with a pretty decent double entendre. Here is his description: "...today while trying to clock the length of the new trail, I ripped off my rear derailleur on a particularly stealthy root. Had to hoof it to the road, and coast back into town. Brian at Beemuns was keen to make the connection: "definitely didn't see that root coming" --- no-see-um, indeed." Tsalteshi Trails Map
Bill is hard at work on the new land south of Skyview. He is about half way thru a new trail that connects into the Squirrel and heads toward the Highway. The new trail needs a new name. We name our trails after Alaskan animals. Please walk, run or ride it over the next few weeks and send us your name suggestions at email@example.com. Click the title to see a map.
