This Friday, the talented photographer siblings @bethanysgoodrich
and her brother will lead a photography workshop for our 4-H Alaska Way of Life program! The kids have been learning the basics of photography indoors, and now they’ll meet at Indian River trailhead and head outdoors to photograph the spectacular details of the Tongass National Forest. Photography is such a great, leave-no-trace way to appreciate and pay close attention to the environment we live in!

“How am I living?”
Too often, we go through the motions of life trying to live up to the expectations from others, trying to live up to our own unrealistic expectations for ourselves, that we forget to live. We forget to do things that make us happy. We become too afraid to cut things out of our lives that don’t make us happy, because it’s not convenient to do so or we need validation from others to be “happy.” The last few years, I’ve learned to cut things, and people out of my life, and made happiness my priority. I made more time for road trips, more time for the northern lights, more time for sauntering in the mountains, and more time for spontaneity in exploring things that I wouldn’t normally do (not drugs or other bad things). Sometimes, I didn’t go about it perfectly. However, living my life was perfect in its own way.
