Flying Out

In praise of the small airport


When the mushers approach, the village comes out to watch

A Trip to the Ski Hill

Thoughts on oil, the economy, and our increasingly elusive snow

The Coffee Shop

Where everybody knows your name

Chickens of the North

Brighter days mean freer range

Yurt, Part Two

Journey to the country house


A return to native waters


What to do when the ground starts to shake?

The Trail We All Will Travel By

An elegy for Eva


What is happening to Alaska’s murres?

Looking Ahead

And saying goodbye

First Snow

Early delights of the season

Heading to Nanwalek

And hoping for a smooth approach

Election Day

The more things change?

Playing at Survival

Learning to forage, 4,000 miles from here


Evergreens gone brown

Closing Up and Putting Away

The summer is gone; so too are the crowds

Thinking Locally

If you dream it, you can do it

A Good Day Fishing

From the bountiful bay

And Now It’s Fall

The warmth was all too fleeting
