Jen and Larry Landry lined two canoes loaded with a winter's supplies to an uninhabited log cabin over 100 miles from the nearest village. There they 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 country.

Winter’s starkness lent poignancy to their solitude, ever shortening days punctuated by not seeing the sun for over two months, intense cold, amplified by grappling with hunger when food supplies ran low. Through it all they reveled in the most profound sense of tranquility and freedom that they have ever experienced.  They floated out after breakup that May. 

Although getting there was simpler--plane and boat--they also 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.

Come for a glimpse into life in Alaska's wilds.
