Baby Katmai in Seldovia Alaska

Baby Katmai in Seldovia Alaska

Happy New Year to all! It feels great to be back and into the swing of things.

We are going to start the New Year off with a story from Alaska. The New York Times recently ran a story about Erin McKittrick and Bretwood Higman. The article highlighted their unique lifestyle and home, a Mongolian-style tent, called a yurt, in Seldovia, Alaska. Click here to see some of the photos.

Last year’s Alaska Program Director, Jordanna, sent me a link to an article when she recognized the family. Last year’s group hiked with this fascinating family and learned quite a bit about the area. The highlight for many seemed to be their bonding with the child who affectionately called “baby Katmai.”

Here is a picture from Jordanna’s camera.
