Worlds Collide

After a trip to Kotzebue, volunteer Jenn says, “Returning to Nome is always my favorite part, as if each trip outward draws me closer inward.”

This little igloo building definitely sticks out in Wales, but we photographed it so much that it felt very loved and appreciated.

You Become

“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time.”
Jenn muses on the great journey of “becoming” as spring springs in a slushy Nome.
