Float plane ride back to Juneau...5 hours late, but better late than never ... Everything in AK is “weather permitting,” but happy to be almost home! #wednesdaycommute #angoon #tenakeesprings #juneau #floatplane #wildalaska #adventuretime #alwaysanadventure #journeyon #gypsyOT
Tenakee Springs, Alaska is a dirt road town with a 10 mile per hour speed limit. Time seems to slow down. Few interactions are in passing. Residents actually bathe together in a communal hot springs sheltered from the rain. And now, there’s a place where time comes to a complete standstill. During a reporting trip around Chichagof Island, KCAW visited the new Tenakee Springs Museum housing the history of this storied southeast town. A cigar box of keys has become a fundraising tool, as members commit their support and claim a key. Visit the Museum for yourself.

Arriving to the village if Tenakee Spring (pop 131) was not without rainbows and whales. The town has no road and no cars- just a dirt road with hand carts and ATVs to get around. #alaska #tenakee #tenakeesprings #travelalaska #smalltowns #noservice #alaskamarinehighway
While living in Alaska I tried my best to get around the state, trying to visit different cities, towns and villages on each trip. I admit I didn't get to as many as I wanted but last weekend I was able to cross off another Alaskan village off my list -- Tenakee! I wish my reason for visiting was different, but the town was welcoming, beautiful, and relaxing. #travel #traveladdict #alaska #tenakee #tenakeesprings #cottagelife #waterfront #thatview #nofilter #SEAlaska

<< Even though we have an outdoor shower on the boat we’re always looking out for possibilities to use public bathrooms as we have to economize our fresh water usage. In #tenakeesprings there is a public #naturalhotspring which was originally built for the local fishermen who lived on their boats without a shower. Until today the #hotsprings are used by the people of Tenakee and serve as a place to meet and soak in the 105°F warm sulphuric water. . . . . . #travelusa #boatlife #explorealaska #backpackerlife #travelcouple #wanderlust #wanderers #travelphotography #travelphotooftheday #travelling #travelers #traveldudes #nude #travelgrams #travelbugs #wonderfulglobe #exploretocreate #igshotz #vtcollective #instagood #thattravelblog #passionpassport #travelandlife #otcouples
Tenakee Springs Sunset. I had overflown this village several times, but it wasn’t until I landed here that I could appreciate the beauty that hides in this small southeastern Alaska village. . . . . #nikon #nikonphotography #nikonphotographer #nps #nikonlove #iamnikon #nikond850 #d850 #nikonphoto #nikonphotographers #travel #wander #wanderlust #traveler #traveller #explore #exploring #adventure #adventuretime #adventurer #explorer #exploring #photo #photograph #pic #picture #Instapic #instagood #photoshoot #adventuretravel

Selfie taken just over 20 years ago in Tenakee Inlet near my camp just outside Tenakee Springs..... feeling fit and full of natural vitality after another adventure-packed summer. Tenakee was a fantastic adventure playground for me that also provided social benefits with the local community. I got to know many of the local inhabitants who are living there because they want to live off the grid as I do, and live a largely subsistence lifestyle. I was particularly good friends with the local postmaster in probably the smallest post office that I ever frequented. He had a small sailboat and I often used to go sailing with him in the inlet. I had other friends that I could visit for some creature comforts and watch movies with. The owner of the store was always very friendly and kind, and even advanced food to me if ever I was waiting for money (nothing has changed!). If I wasn't out kayaking up and down the inlet with the bubble-net feeding humpback whales I was on the other side of the inlet exploring the beautiful Kadashan River where there were Forest Service cabins that I could stay in while I was photographing brown bears catching salmon nearby. #seakayaking #kayaking #kayak #nomad #whaleofatime #oceangypsy #wanderlust #adventureseeker #camping #campinglife #SoutheastAlaska #Alaska #tenakeesprings #frontiertown #tenakeeinlet #filmphotography #fuji #canoneos1n #saveourseas #liveforthestory #ilovealaskafans #natgeo #EarthCapture #BBCEarth #EarthOnLocation #canon @canonuk
During the latter period of my time in Southeast Alaska the small roadless community of Tenakee Springs was usually my final destination in September during the 1990s. I started out at Angoon on Admiralty Island, paddled across Chatham Strait to my camp at Point Hayes and then when the whales had moved on I followed them up into Tenakee Inlet. I became as familiar a seasonal migrant to the friendly local people as the humpback whales, especially in the old store, which you can see here at the end of the ferry dock on the right. Opposite it is the building housing the famous hot springs, which was a great asset to me for a good soak after a hard day's paddling with the whales. It's open to women in the daytime and men all night, and quite often I had it to myself late evening. It's in a natural cleft in the rocks, which is big enough for ten people to soak and just the right temperature. Tenakee Springs has long been used by the Tlingit Indians, the name Tenakee being Tlingit in origin.  At one point Tenakee was known as “Robbers Roost” stemming from bank robbers and other outlaw types reportedly hiding out here. The most notorious of these were members of the Soapy Smith gang who were said to have settled here after Smith’s death in 1899. Gambling and prostitution were part of the rowdy frontier town. There was no reliable law and order here in until 1917 when Deputy U.S. Marshall and a U.S. Commissioner began making regular visits.

#Repost @pribsbluesmuse with @get_repost ・・・ Look at what the home school students of Tenakee Springs helped me test run this week while I was visiting scientist! These young Southeast Alaskans sure did a great job! I enjoyed watching the high schoolers direct the elementary students with their pinning enthusiasm! Dr. Michelle Ridgeway, visiting scientist last year, would have been so proud of them!.. The students, parents, and teacher Megan Moody are planning a Juneau science field trip in April to participate in the Annual AFS-CFOS Student Symposium and first ever Lena Point CFOS Open House to the public! I hope they present their version of this game video and results from a zooplankton project they are starting! #pribsbluesmuse #pribilofislands #tenakeesprings #kingofthepribs #zooplankton #K12education #bluekingcrab #redkingcrab #goldenkingcrab #uafcfos #noaa #adfg #nprb #nprbarctic

A day late, but happy Alaska Day! My biggest blessing has been being raised in land that will forever be the Last Frontier. Here's to the coyotes howling at 3am, seeing a baby whale learn to breach, and the tiny towns that dot the coast💙💛 #eightstarsofgold #tenakeesprings #alaska #alaskaday #home #summer #love #travel #adventure #explore

Bye. Bye #TenakeeSprings . You will be fondly remembered for your #hotsprings bathing house, kayaking with seals, hiking in bear county, shaking the #juice at the party, and your open, inviting community.
Making new friends in high places. - #Tenakeesprings #Alaska
