We recently took a couple to visit Dick Proenneke’s cabin in Twin Lakes. The husband has been a long time fan of Proenneke and his famous documentary and journals. For those of you who aren’t as familiar, Dick Proenneke was a naturalist who lived alone for 30 years in Twin Lakes, Alaska very simply in a log cabin he built himself from resources found on the land. Proenneke documented everyday in journals and video of his life in the wilderness. These recordings eventually aired on PBS in a documentary called Alone in the WIlderness. An amazing trip that’s not as far as most would think.
