Thank you.
Don't know how I missed this so long, Rick.

Dang... just a few months and I'll have to start dealing with the beard-thing again!

That sure was a fun time.

A treasure...

It's like that feeling you get, way down in the cockles of your heart.
I can't begin to express the envy I have for you guys that live or work there seasonally. Different, better choices years ago, and I'd have been there too. But hindsight is 20/20- and I still have time to get a few visits in. Hope you guys have a great season.

I'll ad a little more to this thread before summer, and more again in the fall.
I remember scrolling through this before I left to work at the lodge last year. This was the first time I've looked at it since I came back, and it's hard to explain how awesome the place really is.

This guy definitely shows it though.
[report]Life's been a handful this winter, and I'm not as far along as I wanted to be with the work I am doing. But this week is important- the open comment period for the EPA's final assessment of the Pebble Mine Development closes this Friday. Don't sit on your hands- follow the link below and sign in support of protecting Bristol Bay.

Bristol Bay, Alaska, is home to the most productive salmon fishery on earth. Nearly 40 million sockeye salmon return to its rivers every year, and there is a good chance that if you eat wild caught salmon, it has come from a Bristol Bay fishery.

Foreign mining companies want to develop North America's largest open pit gold, copper and molybdenum mine near the headwaters of these rivers. Open pit mining is the most destructive form of mining, and the toxic waste from the operation will be stored indefinitely behind earthen damns in an area of extremely high seismic activity-ie earthquakes. No one believes there won't be accidents and failures.

If you eat wild salmon, and recognize it for the precious resource that it is, please go to and sign in support of protecting the Bristol Bay region.[/report]

The interconnected watersheds that permeate the regions sustain the last intact salmon populations in the United States, amongst the largest in the world. The salmon are an integral part of that ecosystem, as well as the largest source of wild salmon in our own diets in the US.
