Visit a Wilderness Icon's Cabin

Historic log cabin with a sod roof.

At age 51, Richard Proenneke left civilization to build a cabin in the remote wilderness of Alaska. During the summers of 1967 and 1968, Proenneke built the cabin by himself using local materials and simple handmade hand tools. While living out there alone, he meticulously recorded daily phenology and observations, took pictures, and recorded film about his life on Twin Lakes. Today you can tour his cabin and hike around the same area immortalized in his journals. Learn more on the NPS Lake Clark National Park - Visit Richard Proenneke's Cabin website.
