river run

IMG_4878

the past 2 years we have been guests in a new (to us) village and a beautiful river runs right alongside it

in the winter, the river becomes an ice highway enabling villagers to travel to other villages

but in the summer, the river is a boat highway enabling our friends to live off the land

fish racks dot the landscape

and the reddish-orange fish flags wave in the cool Alaskan breeze

nets in a heap...waiting for their next fling out into the calm water

see the little plane?  i grew up knowing someone was visiting when i heard their car tires in our gravel driveway

here we know by the buzz of a plane engine

someone coming...someone going... or ride's here!

peaceful and quiet
