The summer is season is upon!
As the cold of winter fades to spring, as it will to summer. I feel myself readying for my trip north again, as if an inner migratory behavior has come over me.
My winter was cold and dark, filled with spots of warmth. As I feel myself began the thaw, my bags are packed, but I know I will be going over it once more.
This year I shall be spending my third season in Alaska. I have come to find a position within Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge as the Head Chef. As with most that work within the seasonal world we long for wide open spaces. But for myself I try and find the most remote.
And this season I will be working at my most remote to date. The KFGL is a four hour boat ride from Seward, Alaska. It sits on a Native-owned wildlife sanctuary on the edge of a protected lagoon at the foot of Pedersen Glacier.
The total number of persons at one time shall reach the mid fifty’s and that is with staff. Leaving a true remote wildlife experience, unlike your larger parks.
Four months to look into one ’s self, threw the mirror of the natural world. Isolation a medicine for some, a prison for others. Each season is what we make it for are selves. It can be the experience of a life time, or turn into a bitter a taste in your mouth.
I have had the joy of knowing both, it is from this experience that will make us who we are. We are open books, and it is up to us too fill in the pages.
As each day draws closer to my start, I think of the tribe I belong to. And I wish each and all a blessed season, and to make the most of the experience you shall gain.
