I started this blog with the idea of keeping people we care about connected with our experiences . Alaska is magical and wonderful. The culture here is so different from the lower 48. The native influence of living more of a life of balance is simple in its philosophy but so much harder implement. The lesson learned by focusing on the process allows stronger community bonds to form. Ultimately the relationships that form within the process allow for a much stronger project to emerge. This established connection creates an outcome that helps the entire community .
