Events in communities around Southeast Alaska.

Many in Southeast Alaska may not remember the Grumman Goose amphibian plane. After World War II, this was the workhorse of air travel to remote Alaska villages. Larger towns in Southeast had no landing fields and relied on airplanes that could land on water. An airfield on Annette Island, built during the war, was changed to civilian use. The Grumman Goose ferried jet passengers to Ketchikan's waterfront. (I didn't forget the PBY amphibian planes that also carried passengers. That's for another time.)

On a June day one hundred years ago, three honeymooning couples arrived on the shores of the Salmon River in Gustavus, then known as Strawberry Point. They put up tents and got to work building a four-room cabin - one room for each couple, and one for everyone together.

Since my sophomore year of college, friends have been taking a week or two out of their summers to visit me in Alaska. It's been great because the only thing better than being here is showing it to someone who hasn't. I think it helped people understand some of my mannerisms. There's no way that growing up in a town of 700 people won't have a lingering impact on who you are. After all, small-town California means a city of 20,000 people that is 15 minutes by freeway from one of 60,000 which of course is 15 more minutes from 160,000 people.
