Summer days in Alaska are long and sunny, but everything has its season. And with the lodge closed up tight all winter, and everyone hunkered down, people often ask: what do we do in the off-season?
“Traveller! in what realms afar,
In what planet, in what star,
In what vast, aerial space,
Shines the light upon thy face?
In what gardens of delight
Rest thy weary feet to-night?”
- Henry Wordsworth Longfellow
from his book Ultima Thule, 1880
Deep in the Alaskan wilderness, your little red plane soars over a mountain ridge. Radiant sunlight fills the cockpit.
The wind changes. Your seasoned pilot makes an effortless course correction, coming in low. You veer northward. You breeze over spruce trees -- then into a dark ravine. Outside, mountain goats leap from rock to crag.
"Look ahead," says your pilot. "We're almost there."
With a flash of light the valley opens up before you. Green fields are blanketed with wildflowers. The Chitina River sparkles in the sunlight. And that's when you realize:
Everything has changed.
