If you follow my blog, you saw numerous posts as I prepared for my Chilkoot Trail Artist Residency in 2018. Now you get a glimpse into the trail I hike from Dyea, Alaska to Bennett Lake, British Columbia. This beautiful video was shot and edited by the awesomely talented Steve Hossack who lives in Anchorage Alaska.
I spent two days with Steve and Sarah Frey who is the marketing and development director at the Yukon Arts Center while they filmed my final days on the trail. They are both incredibly charming people and were a blast to work with.
The Chilkoot Trail Artist Residency application is now open, the deadline to apply is February 1, 2019. Click here to Apply
Over the next few days, I will make several posts about my project, the trail, and my preparation, so stay tuned!

At camp with 48 hikers the night before crossing the pass. We played 6 rounds of Bingo for great prizes. People went home with my hand made and signed bingo cards.
