Lucinda Williams

René Edelman Azzara I think I've shared this before, but it's just so awesome I'm sharing it again. On the left is my great-Grampa Ed Edelmann in 1903. Chapter III in Colonel Claude Cane's book, Summer and Fall in Western Alaska is of a hunt that Ed guided a hunting trip for Cane. Ed had a sail boat that he used in Cook Inlet. This hunt takes place on the West side of the Inlet.

Andrew Liszewski: Badass T-rex on a Jetski Is Exactly Why We’ll Miss the Summer

 

 

Alaska T-Rex!

T-REX STEALS BABY!
OUR STORY SO FAR:
We are Cory & Kristen Williams and in August 2014 we made the long drive from Southern California to Alaska to move into our new home in Eagle River. Here we’ve had the chance to explore Alaska, experience lots of wild events, meet lots of great people and endure the extreme temperatures that the north is known for. On December 20th, 2014 we got engaged after our Polar Plunge under the Northern Lights then later married by our favorite lake on May 23rd, 2015. Then on June 23rd, 2016 we had our first child. A baby girl named Chell.
WHAT DOES “DudeLikeHELLA” MEAN?:
“Dude” is me, Cory. I am the dude. “Like” is a joining word which is used to express similarities and “HELLA” is slang for “a lot” or in my case, “the greatest amount”. So together, “DudeLikeHELLA” means “The best me I can be”.
