Less than a week ago, our good friend Ken Leghorn ended his adventure on this earth. In recounting his last day, and the beginning of “his next adventure,” his wife Julie Coppen commented that “He’s off in the wilds again, where he will know exactly where to go and what to do.” Her words are fitting given Ken’s ease in Alaska’s wilderness and his commitments to introducing people to Alaska wilds as a guide and to protecting these areas as a civic leader. Ken remains present with us as we travel in and through nature’s beauty.
