Foodie Heaven at Salmonstock

We keep finding more photos from our trip to the awesome 2013 Salmonstock – this round is all about the food. Which was fan-freaking-tastic. I think that Jeanne and I must have had about 7 meals the one day that we were there, and we barely even scratched the surface of this foodie heaven in the middle of Ninilchik, Alaska. For more info – go to and like their facebook page!  

Rock for the Salmon! – Music at Salmonstock

Salmonstock was several weeks ago – I know – but we just got so many awesome photos we’re finally ready to start posting them all.

Bob Shavelson at Salmonstock

Check out this video Inlet Keepers Exec Dir. Bob Shavelson spoke at Salmonstock 2013 explaining to everyone at Salmonstock why they were there. Chuitna, HB77, No Pebble – the fight is varied but together we can win. Go to for more info.

Salmonstock: Ray Troll Prints!

At Salmonstock 2013 I was lucky enough to see the honorable artist Ray Troll make a print. If you’re a follower of Renewable Resources Coalition and Salmonstock (which you should be if you’re a reader of ours!) – you’ll recognize his art from the many t-shirts that they sell at the Salmonstock store. Ray also is the artist of the Raven’s Brew Coffee bags. During the process of making the print a couple attendees of Salmonstock pitched in to help as it’s a long and careful process of making sure that it comes out right. I kept on shooting throughout the…

Open Thread: Don’t Tread On…

I see the Gadsden Flag at a lot of Alaskan events. Since that was about the original colonies, “Don’t Tread on Me” means something completely different here. I think Alaska needs its own version. Here’s my take; maybe it’s time to start The Salmon Party. Original art by The Troll Brothers Donate to Renewable Resources here. Find out more about the No Pebble Campaign at here. By the way… Salmon Stock is going on RIGHT NOW.
