Yes I know, this is my 5th year going to Chickenstock and Eagle and using this same title, but hey, it’s the perfect title. Why mess with perfection? But really, I can only repeat these so many times, so if you would like to hear more of the story or see some of the other years with more pictures and/or story, check out these other years as basically I am dumping my pictures here and posting it.
We begin with Chickenstock Music Festival in the little town of Chicken, Alaska.
My friend Kate’s husband, Dave Parks of Grassroots Guitars.
Such a little cutie just dancing away. Mostly it was just kids dancing during the daytime.
Spank Williams and friends.
The Cluck Off was a tie! We were dying with laughter because these two finalists really brought it. They were clucking and pecking, scratching the dirt and shaking their tail feathers. Good times, good times.
1000 baggie clad Peeps were dropped by three different passes.
Kat Moore from the Super Saturated Sugar Strings. She is really fun. When not playing she is dancing, visiting, and hoola hooping with us all.
Here is a compilation of video clips I took during our trip. Most of the one during Chickenstock were during the day when I had time to video. During the evenings, I was too busy dancing to worry about taking video.
I really love visiting my dear friends Scarlett and Wayne with Bush Alaska Expeditions. They really help me to refocus on what is important and even our rare, annual visit helps to keep me grounded in my goals.
They have a young handler staying with them and he used to play the violin. “It had to do with a pretty girl, who taught violin.” It was really fun to spend an evening just taking turns trying out different tunes, seeing what we each could remember.
They also had a new batch of puppies with eyes just opening.
The most sweet spot on Earth is right here.
The Mighty, Mighty Yukon River! I’m going to canoe this river next year.
Well that’s it in a nutshell. I love our busy, busy summers. They really are the promise that Alaska makes us in the winter. Until next time my friends. Have a great summer, love your family and your friends, and be happy.
