Located on the west side of Cook Inlet on a small island called Chisik and abutted up against Lake Clark National Park, this place has a siren like call to me. Every time I’ve left the island and it’s historic cannery I’m sure that’s the last I’ll see of it only to have fortune pull me back.
Snug Harbor Cannery
The place just reeks of ghost and memories from a by gone era when people from all corners of the world came to Alaska seeking their fortune. And here I am following in their footsteps.
Winter takes a heavy toll on the cannery, and this year I was included in a work party that came out to put the place in order for the summer activities. Replace broken pipes, install new washer & dryer, set the 1000 lb moorings for the fishing fleet, this is just a short list of the tasks needed to be done. And this being Alaska, of course it was pouring rain the entire week we were there. On our last day, we were rewarded with this view outside our galley windows.
