At an elevation of 1,300 feet in the Chugach National Forest Juneau Lake Cabin is one of the first rustic cabins on the Resurrection Pass Trail.
The blue water of the lake stretches to the feet of the mountains here on the Kenai Peninsula.
In my opinion, this is one of the best camping and ATVing spots on the Glenn.
I always knew when uncle came into the house. His arrival was followed with the slam of the maple door and the shaking of the window glass. His hollered greetings echoed through the hallways reaching any ears scattered throughout the house. At the arrival of his brother-in-law, my Pepe leapt from his place at the [...]
We have been tricked. The weather seems to have snuggled closer to winter.
I have successfully secured my childhood dream job: a summer fishing in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Readers, you are probably cringing at the thought of having to touch the slime covered bodies of fish that have been caught in their immanent death. I can only think of the experience that I will have. Depending on the [...]
The coziest boots I have every owned have been ones that I have trudge through most everything in, wear almost every day. Whether dry or soaking wet, socks or no socks they have never failed to keep me warm. I have walked through the park, played in the snow for hours, hiked a glacier, and [...]
Protected from tourists by 60 miles of dirt road, the hardships in reaching McCarthy make it part of the adventure.
The first time I went backpacking I packed all the wrong gear and way to much of it. I was the unhappiest camper alive. Using what I learned the second time wasn’t as bad, but the third was the best. Looking back I wish that there had been someone there to tell me exactly what I needed [...]
The warmth of my eyelids as I blinked was the only sensation of cold I felt. My snow gear grew heavy as the water penetrated and filled the fabric. Looking up, the pale translucent light was rising. The bottom of my feet landed flat and hard. One thought dominated all of my efforts, to get [...]

For example, Jennifer dirt bikes, Mom rafts, Dad hunts, Cecilia hikes, I ATV, Isaac does archery and so on. So with a large varity of different [...]
Shopping for Isaac’s birthday I came across a sale on tents. Stacked among the available options at REI was a group of Hobitat 6 tents. Tent and added vestibule was about $300. We needed a new ten. The last one, only three years old was already worn out from adventures in the Alaska wilderness. We quickly decided [...]
With unspoken words, every weekend is deemed to have some sort of crazy or perhaps even crazier adventure. Most of the time we don’t normally plan any more than1-2 days ahead; sometimes even only a few minutes ahead of time. Ha! Getting ready for an adventure is one of the hardest parts especially because over [...]
We made it to Independence Mine in Hatcher’s Pass at 12:30 AM Sunday morning. Saturday had been filled with errands keeping us from adventure. Conversation at dinner time quickly concluded it was still the weekend and there was time for fun. I had promised Megan our next trip would be on ATV so we loaded [...]
Traveling We reached the banks of the Nenana River at mile 18 of the Denali Highway before noon. Zoe, age 6 hopped eagerly from the truck and vomited in the tall grass. Zeke had done the same in the back seat an hour before. At only five years old we had the good fortune he [...]
