Alaska Magazine!

May 31, 2013

Just got to see the final copy on this essay I wrote for the May/June issue of Alaska Magazine. So excited because the essay really should have been a chapter in the book. (In fact, I think it once was, but had to be cut along way due to pacing.) It's all about rafting the Deshka river: 2 Great Alaskan Dads, 2 Great Alaskan Daughters, 1 Great Alaskan son, endless rain, endless Milky Ways, endless King salmon and no current...at all.
