Jim's Ah, Alaska Creation

"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known."
~Winnie the Pooh
Pooh's Little Instruction Book

Hey everybody Jim's gonna take us on a trip 'up river'! Come on! Don't miss this!

You simply must check out his video that he put together of our beloved Kanektok River!

He has some serious talent here people:)

I promise it will absolutely be worth your while to take a few minutes, let it download and enjoy the ride!

Just push the play button and wait (you may want to pause it for a few minutes to let it get ahead so it doesn't keep stopping to catch up with itself). Make sure your volume is up because the video is set to a great song!

"Instead, God! God majestic, God himself the place
in a country of broad rivers and streams,
But rivers blocked to invading ships,
off-limits to predatory pirates.
For God makes all the decisions here. God is our king.
God runs this place and he'll keep us safe." Isaiah 33:21-22


  1. Very cool video. How far up the river do they go to fish or whatever? How far does that river go- all the way to Bethel? Do they fish the river instead of the Bering Sea? Those bushes along the river appear to be tall like trees. Very pretty. Is the river now frozen over? Does anyone ice skate? Our warm weather continues. It was near 70 this weekend - yesterday was in the 60's - today about 58. Not bad for Nov. That may be why you are so cold.

  2. Hey Kid, AWESOME VIDEO!!! It takes me back to the time Faith and I went on float trip on the Snake River in thr Tetons. Your Bible verse was so appropriate, because we are truly blessed with God's awesome beauty everywhere everyday!! Hey keep up the domestic skills and I would like to try some of the jelly!!!

  3. Hola Raquel!
