Box 427 - Atlin,
May of 2002
we left Calgary (Alberta) to settle in Atlin (British Columbia).
This small and remote Northern community is situated in the far northwest
corner of this Canadian province, right on the BC-Yukon border.
After nearly 25 years of living and working in a growing Calgary we moved
to a small remote hamlet with just a few hundred souls.
people know that we always loved the North.
one of our vacations we found this delightful spot on the eastern shores
of Atlin Lake.
Nearby the mighty Yukon River starts as a small stream coming off the Llewellyn
That same vacation we bought our home. Now we are here permanently. A not
unusual story here in Atlin!
Sometimes you just have to follow your nose. Never mind common sense!
Anyway we, sole-handedly, enlarged the house a few times and build ourselves
a nice deck to look out over the lake and the glaciers beyond.
The cabin in the backyard became our studio, where (mostly) Wil produces
