I suppose our ignorance is to blame for the mispronunciation, and we quickly discovered that Kokhanok is just about as far as you can get from a Jimmy Buffet song yet we still got to enjoy some home-brewed crowberry wine and there was just enough snow left on the mountains for margaritas! Let me tell you a bit more about the place where we would spend the next three weeks…. Kokhanok is a village located in southwest Alaska on the shore Iliamna Lake the largest lake in Alaska. Many of the elders speak Yupik which is the Aluet-Eskimo language, although like many other native languages it is, unfortunately, not being widely passed down to the younger generation. The surrounding landscape is wild and vast Alaska wilderness.

Urayuli , or "Hairy Men",  are a mythical race of creatures that live in the woodland areas of southwestern Alaska. Their long, lanky arms have been described as reaching down to their ankles. Rumored to live in the forests near the area of Lake Iliamna , the Urayuli are said to be peaceful creatures, unlike the Kushtaka of Southeastern Alaska. It is said the Urayuli are transformed children who become lost in the woods at night, it is possible that this tale was started to keep children indoors at night. Myth Myth is a folklore genre consisting of narratives or stories that play a fundamental role in a society, such as foundational tales or origin myths. The main characters in myths are gods, demigods or supernatural humans.

Winter is SO much better in Alaska. It is dangerous! It is bitter cold, frigid temperatures, stuck or iced vehicles, hazardous roads, and schools closing…I could go on forever about why I dislike winter in PA.
