Jen and Larry lined two canoes

loaded with a winter's supplies to

an uninhabited log cabin over 100

miles from the nearest village.

There we settled in for the long

winter--fixing up the cabin, picking

berries, hunting moose and small

game, bucking up firewood with an

ax and bow saw, exploring the


Winter’s starkness lent poignancy

to our solitude, ever shortening

days punctuated by not seeing the

sun for over two months,

intensecold, amplified by grappling

with hunger when our food supplies

ran low.

Through it all we reveled in the

most profound sense of tranquility

and freedom that we have ever

experienced.  We floated out after

breakup in May.

Although getting there was

simpler--plane and boat--we spent

another winter on a remote

homestead at the tip of the Alaska

Peninsula, a place of extraordinary

beauty and wildlife, with foul

weather to match.

Slides and stories of life in the

Alaska wilds.
