Thursday: August 16 (Alaska Trip Day #7)

The Hooper Bay dump. Trash to the left, honey buckets to the right. If you need further explanation as to what a honey bucket is, feel free to send me a personal e-mail and I will give you additional details.

The cemetery sits at the edge of town, past the dump, on the edge of the tundra.

That's all for the bad spite of what might seem to be overwhelming odds and a miserable existence, many of the people of Hooper Bay find joy in the small things. And thanks to the work of the state of Alaska and organizations like Samaritan's Purse, the future is looking much brighter. In this image, local kids play around the base of what will be three large wind turbines, bringing reliable, cheap electricity electricity to this isolated town.
