How we love this little country church in Slana! It’s the only one for miles around and has as its members the cream of the crop of the Alaska pioneers.
Such a great night singing there and meeting the homesteaders from the surrounding areas.
What a view, and such a sweet house overlooking the rivers! We enjoyed spending some time here with our hosts, who had become dear friends last time we were in Alaska.
They live off the land and do rustic wilderness rentals + trapping as their occupation. We loved their stories + hospitality!
The husband does the trapping and his wife makes all manner of amazing products, like this hat, with some of the furs.
Denver getting the lowdown on some of the prize furs.
Dinner time. What a spread!
Sweet time around the table!
Time to go down to the lake and get lunch!
